So it's been a week and I have been diligently adding Seed to my tank to cycle it. I have dead rock and dead sand in the tank. I have followed every single dosing suggestion but after a week Ammonia is still 0, nitrite still 0 and nitrate is also 0. How do I cycle the tank? Is it usual...

Ammonia and new tankHello! I recently just set up a new tank a few weeks back. I tested the water today and it came back with high ammonia.

Products & medicationI have a 29 gallon tank that is used as a goldfish quarantine tank. We treat the fish for one week with a general internal/external parasite medication. After that the critters are fed to axolotls.
Because we are treating the tank, there is no carbon/chemical based filtration in the tank...since...
Stability and high ammoniaHello
I have been doing a fishless cycle for about 2 weeks. The ammonia level has risen steadily during these 2 weeks due to the dead material on the rocks (the rocks in the tank are not live rock, but dried up pieces of what used to be live rock).
Worried about the continual...
