Thanks for the advice. I think I?m going to wait it out another week or two to see what happens. Then I?ll try that method if it doesn?t work.I would stop feeding until nitrites/nitrate drop, these 2 do take longer time to process. When cycling my tank I did look into special blend but you would have to use more than one of their product which takes around 6 weeks to cycle and most important follow the bottle direction. You can wait it out or try Dr. Tim's.
I would do a water change and buy a small bottle of Dr. Tim's one and only nitrifying bacteria and use the complete bottle. If you cycling fish-less less you will need to purchase ammonia as well. I use this product twice in the past to cycle my tank and each time tank was cycle in a week.
