Tank cycle


My tank has been cycling for 14 days. Ammonia went way up and it’s starting to drop. It’s at .25, maybe a little less now. Nitrates are obviously high at this point. Should I do a water change before the ammonia hits 0? Or wait?

I agree no water change as you want those bacteria to keep building, I never do water changes as it is too much work and costs to much money.
The only water change I perform is in the isolation tank...
