Did you add dechlorinator ? just trying to figure out where ammonia reading is coming from in tank with no fish?Might check the tapwater for ammonia.
I would also consider using dechlorinator such as PRIME or AMQUEL+ both of which address ammonia,nitritres,chlorine,and chloramines.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

after using prime, everything is zero. I hope the pH goes down with the wood. I have one major issue. There is cat hair on the top of the water. I tried using the net to scoop everything out but its not working. The water is clear its just that the hair up top is horrible looking

Find the appropriate section you want to post in, and on the left at the top is a button "New Thread". Click that, and away you go.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
