Ammonia

What is the best and safest way to lower the ammonia level in our tank. It has been very high for the past month or so. We change the water roughly 50% every 3 days and that still doesn't work

Was the tank cycled? What's the tank size? Stock? What test kit are you using? And what is your definition of high?

Yes, larger, more frequent water changes are generally the best way but what are you specific ammonia readings, are you testing before or after your water changes, what is in the tank, how large is the tank and how long has the tank been setup and running with fish in it?
