Wow, I didn't see that before. Make sure you're test kit is reading accurately. Take some water to an LFS and have them confirm. It's not good for your ammonia to be that high. If you're not already, be prepared to do a large water change.

I would retest for sure. You could have done the test incorrectly. I have done the same thing and after testing again found my error.

I agree with Neilan take some water to your LFS and have them confirm your results.
