    Lee,
    You don't want to actually remove the ammonia, since it is food for the beneficial bacteria that should be colonizing in your tank. Prime, as Shawnie recommended, will detoxify it for 24 hours. Then after 24 hours, you can do another partial water change with Prime conditioner. You should do this daily until your readings are 0 ammonia, 0 nitritres, and under 20 nitrates.
