Something to note, there is strong evidence that ammonia levels over 7ppm can begin poisoning the nitrifying bacteria. You should try to keep the ammonia level at 5ppm or less to avoid "stalling" your cycle.

The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
Don't give up entirely on the adding aqueous ammonia method. Some places to check for unscented, undyed, non-sudsing, clear aqueous ammonia are local grocers, home improvement stores (i.e. Home Depot, Lowes, True Value, Ace, etc.), Pharmacies (i.e. Walgreen's, CVS, etc.). You will most likely never see a pet/fish store selling this clear ammonia since it's harmful to fish. Make sure it only contains ammonia and water
