Fish-In Cycling

Hey guys! Well everyone is doing well, I have Lyra and Polaris in the 10 gallon divided tank, while Adamu is still in the 2 gallon Hospital tank. My future Sorority tank is currently cycling fishless with added ammonia, and even though I know its not the best way to do it, I'm doing a fish-in cycle for the divided tank.

It seems to be going good and I have some nitrites showing up now, but at what level should I change the water? PH I haven't checked yet, but Ammonia I think is at 1.0 PPM and Nitrite is at .25 ppm. I think this is a bit high and I was going to do a 20% water change today, but just wanted to ask you guys to make sure. I don't wanna hurt meh babehs. Thanks!

Also how long do you think it'll take to cycle the Sorority tank? I have about 5.0 PPM of Ammonia with 0 nitrites.

I would make 50% water only changes anytime you have ammonia, nitrite 0.25ppm or greater for fish safety.
As long as you don't over vacuum, clean or over clean the filter media- water only change will not hurt or slow the cycling process.
