After many water changes, feeding my fish lightly and nights of worry, I think the cycle is complete. I tested my water, and the pH and buffer are still a little low, however my nitrite reading was 0, and my nitrate reading was 40, within the safe zone according to the booklet. Is it true?? Thanks to everyone for the advice, you all really helped me a lot!! :)

40 is ok, but it really is best to keep them as low as you possibly can. Long term exposure to high nitrates have been linked to swimbladder disease and will cause stress to the fish over time. I always keep mine below 10. You cna do this by regularly gravel vaccing and not overfeeding.
