Is it cycled?

I have a 5 gallon tank with a low flow filter, 1 betta, 1 Nerite snail, and 1 Mystery snail. No plants as of yet.

Here are my current water parameters:

Ammonia: 0 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 5 ppm

Just wondering if everything looks right or not. I do water changes 50% once a week.

I have exactly the same parameters, so I'm watching this thread! I'm sorry I can't answer.

Good question from Backlash.

But, generally, if your ammonia and nitrite read zeros AND your tank is producing measurable nitrates every week, you're cycled.
