It takes longer than 5 weeks to cycle through. It will begin to fall after peeking, then you'll end up with the nitrate readings.

sounds perfectly normal for a month out.
youll need to do water changes and continue "feeding" the tank while the beneficial bacteria builds, saltwater takes a long time to properly cycle...you just need to be patient and diligent.
