Ammonia levels not dropping!!

What's probably going on is that the tests can be hard to read, and it's easier to see a jump in nitrites than a drop in ammonia. The ammonia probably is dropping but it's difficult to see.

You're not continuing to add ammonia right?

You could always try a small bottle of Tetra SafeStart to seed a bit of bacteria. Maybe your cycle just needs a small kick start.
