The ammonia is zeroed out and I told him to add the exact amount which I syringe but this is now a new bottle of the ammonia (same brand) so I'm not too sure. What if I wait to see if we get zero nitrites tomorrow then redose exactly the same and see if we get a better results 24 hours after? Or just dose ammonia right now?Is it possible your brother added a bit more ammonia than you have been adding? If so that may explain why the nitrites didn't zero out within 24 hours. If you are sure he added the correct amount then I have to think this tank isn't quite ready for fish just yet. I would go ahead and dose today. To be safe we want to be sure this tank will constantly process 2ppm ammonia straight through to nitrates within 24 hours.
