For your fishes sake, do an immediate water change squirt a full dose of Amquel or Prime every few days to detoxify the ammonia and the upcoming nitrite. It should not slow down your cycling process.

I have heard that by detoxifying the ammonia and nitrite, the cycle is greatly accelerated. Firstly, the bacteria's general growth rate is not slowed by ammonia and nitrite toxicity, and secondly, the nitrite spike will begin immediately, as it is not inhibited by high ammonia levels (which the nitrite bacteria don't deal with very well?). Anybody have any experiences?
