Hey everyone i need some advise I started using the red sea mature program and decided I didnt want to continue. So I got a bottle of Dr tims aquatic ammonium
here is what my ammonia is reading. It's in the <.15 category maybe .25. As per the instructions on the ammonia bottle it reads "add 1 drop per gal (Or 1 ml per 20 gal ; cap =6 ml) of aquarium water to achieve an ammonia nitrogen level concentration of 2 "
So in a 60 gallon system i added 3 ml with no change in ammonia reading . Not sure what I'm doing wrong

Dr tim says if you add the bacteria and ammonia then wait 24 hours you may not read ammonia because the bacteria already consumed it.
