Ok so it has almost been three weeks and nothing yet, I have had to dose up to 4ppm once after initial does after that the ammonia level has maintained 4ppm. Unsure of what to do at this point. Do I wait longer or maybe do a partial water change (have not done one yet). Any suggestions are useful.

I would still say the same lol
Not a less butterfly_koi knows something I don't. From my understanding it can take several weeks to even get any nitrite. I know I know its a long process but it hasn't been that long. once its done you shouldn't have any problems.
