I see what you mean. I tested the ammonia again today, and it held steady at 0.25 ppm. No significant nitrites have been detected yet. The reason why I decided to cycle with fish is that I had a hard time finding pure ammonia in my area, and two independent fish stores I called both recommended cycling with fish, so I went with their advice. Either the Nitromax isn't working, or the ammonia is not high enough for the bacteria to kick in. Perhaps I should have bought BioSpira instead.

I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait it out.
