So I have used pure ammonia to cycle my other three tanks and works great.

Here is where I need some help thought:
I started cycling my new 36-Gallon bowfront tank—this is going to be my first planted tank. I have the Nitrogen cycle started but it’s just not taking the Nitrites down to Zero as fast as I want it to before I add fish. A few days ago I got my plants in the mail and added them. Now here is where my struggle is—I haven’t added any more pure ammonia to my tank TK continue billing the good bacteria because I’m not aware of that’s going to kill all my plants off and I’m having a hard time getting the question answers off forum just searching for the answer.

So can I add pure ammonia to my tank to continue my Fishless cycle with live plants in the tank?

Thanks.

The ammonia won't hurt the plants. I did both of my fishless cycles with my tanks fully planted.
