This morning my 75 gallon tank read .25 for ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 5-10 nitrates. I have a fluval 405 canister filter.

I test everyday and it is always .25. Does this mean that my tank is not fully cycled?

I ran both ph test and this is what I got



I cant tell what the actual reading is.

The tank has been up for about a month now with fish in it, and about a week before that. I had gravel and used bio wheel from the guy I bought it from to help cycle.

The higher your pH is , the more toxic Ammonia becomes , even at low levels.
What water conditioner are you using ?

Have you had Nitrites yet ?
