    Hey! I'm cycling my 20gL, and I need a little help. I used TSS+, I dosed about 2ML of ammonia first, but it still hasn't gone, I dosed it on Tuesday. But its not gone, what do I do?

    It takes a while for the TSS+ bacteria to establish. That is why it says to not test or anything for at least a week. I'd leave it until next Tuesday before I even tested again.

    When I have dosed my other tanks with TSS+, we waited for about a hour, and then dosed the ammonia. It all worked.

    Actually, TSS+ has to have an ammonia source within 24 hours of being added.
    If we waited that long, it would have all died.

    Yes it does need ammonia, and it seems as if you added ammonia already and it is still reading ammonia. What I am saying is that it takes a while for the BB to mature enough to handle the ammonia you put in there.
