Appreciate the words of wisdom. Frustration is defitely setting in now though, checked today and the ammonia is at 2 but nitrites and nitrates have gone to zero. I must've done the gravel vacuuming wrong.

Wonder what would happen if we add Hydroponic Fertilisers like General Hydroponic's products (Genhydro.com) which contain nutrients for plants?
Would these micro and macro nutrients be better than fish-foods or ammonia etc?

Better for plants, certainly. But nitrifying bacteria need their own food --- ammonia, then nitrite.

Plants help by reducing the need for large colonies of bacteria.
