Exclamation new clown loaches but problems

Hello , i got clown loaches 1 weeks ago and in the last 2 day my Ammonia is 0.25 ppm is this a problem?
info on the tank
29 gallons
all normal
nitrates
nitrites
my biggest worry is my black ghost knife fish i know the tank is small but theres a 55 cycling and a 200 gallon down the road for all of them!

could it be my test kit it has vary bad color matching its API MASTER TEST KIT
the test alway look like the 0.25 ppm
ONE more thing the clown loaches stop schooling a day ago and there all not eating as will as they were!

How long has the tank been running with fish?
What is normal ? need more info on water parameter's. Might test the tapwater for ammonia and if present,consider zeolite added to filter.
Clown loaches will do poorly with ammonia readings other than zero.(water changes)

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