    Ammonia is best measured below 2ppm, since the test is unreliable when it gets closer to 4ppm. Toxic ammonia will affect the cycle if it goes too high. At a PH of 8.0, it won't take that much. ...

    Okay so your tank can't handle all the 1ppm ammonia yet. But, smaller fish don't put out that much ammonia in one shot in a 40g tank.

    Did you test the tap water after it has been sitting out for 24 hours in a cup? That will give you the most accurate PH reading.

    At your low PH, the bacteria colony doesn't work as well as those with a PH above 7.2. Hence, the ammonia reading 2 months later. But don't worry, the API Ammonia test reads total ammonia, meaning...

    1 weeks worth of cloudiness is definitely a sign of having too little population of heterotrophic bacteria, and too much nutrients in the water column.

    There are a lot of fish (not just goldfish) that do well in the 50F-84F, and some actually require the lower temperature for longevity. Of course you would have to stock less.

    I see you have a bubbler, why not just add another one in the dead spot using a T connector? That's much cheaper modification than adding and then removing a powerhead in case you don't like it.
