Well this morning my ammonia was 0.25 so it seems as if it is going down on its own using the sponge filter. I will continue to do water changes in hopes I get it to zero!

I checked my parameters today and they read:

Nitrites 0
Nitrates 10
Ph 8.0
Drumroll please
Ammonia 0!!!!!!!

It seems as if 4 months and a few days, and countless water changes and a sponge filter (seeded) I may finally be cycled! My first tank had its ups Nd downs but now I think I know what I'm doing!!!

Congrats! Moss balls cured my ammonia problem in about a week. They recommend 1 moss ball per 10 gallons.
