I am trying again. Everything cleaned and this time I purchased an Ammonia test kit.

Just added the water treatment and will wait till tomorrow to add the fish. Wish me luck.

I would recommend using Prime water conditioner. My tap water has ammonia in it, too and I started using Prime.It neutralizes ammonia.

But it only neutralizes for 24 hours.

I have ammonia in my tap water too. However, my tank is perfectly cycled and so before the 24 hours is up, all ammonia levels have been brought down to 0ppm and I have nothing to worry about. You, on the other hand (if you decide not to cycle for whatever reason) may either have to 1) do daily water changes using Prime or any conditioner that neutralizes ammonia, or 2) get another source of water that is ammonia-less.
