Unhappy Ammonia Too High !?!?!?!

I've cycled my aquarium, and the ammonia level is still too high! I've done a twenty percent water change last week and the ammonia in the water is still the same reading last time I checked. What should I do? Please Help!

More frequent water changes until it goes down. Try 10% daily.

Ammonia should be 0ppm, anything over that is too high. What are your readings? do you have ammonia reading direct from tap water?

Sounds to me like your tank is not done cycling yet. You will know it is done when ammonia drops to and stays at 0ppm
