Ammonia Spike! Advice Needed
Hi. So about three days ago I received my bottle of pure ammonia through the post. My tank was already testing 1ppm due to the fish flakes I had been feeding it prior. On the day I received the ammonia I dosed the tank and got the levels to about 2ppm/3ppm. I figured to get a more exact reading of 3ppm I would add a touch more ammonia. I literally added three little drops and today when I tested the tank water I got a reading of 6ppm! Now i'm unsure what to do, if I leave the water and don't add anymore for a couple of weeks will it naturally go down itself when nitrites are introduced, or are the high levels or ammonia going to stop the cycle commencing altogether?
