I would say you are uncycled. What test kit do you have? 1ppm ammonia, less than.25 nitrite=0, less than 5ppm nitrate=0. You have ammonia, no nitrite, no nitrate.

That's a lot of ammonia. Having trace nitrite and a little nitrate indicates it's working. What happened to your cycle , fff? Is that tank inhabited? Crack open the Prime
