I have done multiple water changes since then and my ammonia levels are stuck at 8.0 ppm my poor tang still has ich for weeks now but seems ok regardless. I give up on the ammonia it wont go down regardless of all my attempts and I haven't loss any fish with the high levels? Mind boggled at this point! Im going to let nature do its thing!

The ammonia has to be coming from somewhere. It does not just appear from nothing. Naturally, it should convert to nitrite, then nitrate. I'm lost as to what would cause it to stall and stay as ammonia. I would get the water tested at the LFS. You may have a bad kit. You've got nothing to lose by getting a second opinion. If it stays high, it will kill everything in the tank.

If you are not treating the Ich, you still have that problem if/when the parameters get in check. Even if the Tang lives, so does the Ich and any fish you add could get it.
