I’m currently cycling a tank. I added ammonium hydroxide 8 days ago. A day later it dropped to 1ppm. Seven days later, it is still at 1. This is the fourth week of cycling, and I am past the nitrite spike. I have 0 nitrite, 1 ammonia, and abt 20 nitrate. I have 20 snails in there. 


Why is this happening?? I am super frustrated and have never heard of this happening to anyone. Like I said 0 nitrites!!! I used to have 0.-1 nitrites and now 0. Why do I still have ammonia, and why hasn’t it dropped after 7 days???!!
