Well bad news. After a water change to get the nitrates down I totally jacked up the cycle. I'm now back to about .5ppm ammonia 0 nitrites and 10-15ish nitrates.
I did a 50% PWC to start, noticed the ammonia shot back up but nitrates cut in half. About 3 days later I did another 25% PWC to add more prime to lock out bad ammonia. Two days after the 25% PWC I'm at the readings above.
Ugh this aquarium stuff is getting too frustrating.
And to add on to it, it looks like my little guy is starting to get fin rot :(
