Water Parameters Question

So I did about a 40% water change this morning in my 55 gallon tank, I just came home and checked my water parameters, ammonia is at 1.0, nitrate is 0 and nitrite is 0 and ph is 6.6, my tank hasn't started cycling, this tank has been set up for a month already and already got fish. How can I cycle my tank ?

Sometimes it will take up to 6-8 weeks to cycle. I would do every other day water changes, until you get reading for nitrates. Each time about 50% water change. Use Prime to detoxify the ammonia.
