Liquid test kit?

My ammonia part of the liquid test kit has transparent drops, I just began cycling so there's no ammonia but why isn't it coming up as that green color of 0? Like it's just clear.

I'm using the SW in my tank. It was declorinized before I added the salt.

Regular tap. Then treated with a declorinizer. Waited 24 hours. Then added salt

Did you use both bottles of testing solution? If you don't add the second 8 drops then youll end up with no color.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
