It can take 6-8 weeks to cycle a tank...even when a bio-seed is used. You need to be patient. Also, bear in mind that too much ammonia can stifle development of nitrosomas bacteria so don't be afraid to perform water changes to keep ammonia on the low side. I would also consider using a bio-seed like Seachem Stability or API QuickStart.

A bio-seed typically accelerates the process as it introduces the beneficial bacteria.
