I'm cycling 2 tanks without any fish. Adding in liquid ammonia. Ph is 7, ammonia is 0, nitrite is off the chart and nitrate is between .5 and 10. I've been dosing ammonia up to 2ppm daily. I did a 90% water change yesterday and these results were taken today. Do I just keep waiting?

yep. the only way to speed up your cycle is to add bottled bacteria like stability or raise your temperature.

nitrobacter are slow to get going. but they do grow exponentially. if you did a big water change & they're still that high, patience is the answer. they'll start to drop and then within days they'll be at .25 or 0.
