Ammonia at 1.0

Hello again before I begin yes my tank has fully cycled. I tested my water last night and my params were: nitrite 0 ammonia 1.0 ph 8.8 and nitrate 40. What aside from a large water change should be my course of action here? There is no visible sign of where the ammonia could be coming from and skimmer is functioning fine I also feed only every other day

What size tank and what fish are in there? Any dead spots? Any new additions. (live rock)? It is coming from something and if the tank is cycled, it should not stay above zero for long.

How long has it been setup for? IF it has truly cycled there should be zero ammonia.

Is there anything I can add to get rid of them or just get more aggressive with my pwc? I currently do a 20% every other week

Not sure what brand of powerhead you have but you might look into a wavemaker that can be attached to it.
