Have you tested your water out of the tap? Are you aging and mixing your water before you add it to the aquarium?

Yesterday I did 100% water change the parameters this morning are nitrite and nitrate 0 ppm and the ph went from 7.4 to 8.0 but the ammonia is still very high 1 ppm.

I'm not using tab water for the tank. I'm using R/O water pre mix from the fish store I bought. And I did test the water and it was ammonia free.

It sounds like you ar doing everything that you are suppoesed yo be doing. I'm baffled too.

There's one other possibility that I can think of and perhaps you were using some type of household cleaner in the room housing the tank and maybe some got into the tank?

Many people take their water out of the tap and age it for 24 hours or longer while mixing salt and heating it to allow some of the chlorine to gas off.
