My nitrites are definitely getting lower now. Instead of turning purple as soon as the drops go in, it actually stays light blue for 1 minute then turns purple. My ammonia is being converted so quick its hard to keep up with. I added a little of 1 ppm last night and this morning it was gone. Glad I stuck with it.

cool, couple more days and you probably done...
once your nitrites are 0 check your nitrates... they are more than likely off the chart, do a large water change if they are at about 80% with dechlorinated water, treat the water before you add it to the tank, and add more ammonia to take it to 1ppm and check again in 12 hours, if ammonia and nitrites 0 your ready, keep topping up the ammonia till you stock it and the ammonia and nirites must be 0 before you add the fish
