    I have set up a new to me 90 gallon display.( see tank forum for description) I used DR. Tims one and only 16oz total. Then dosed with DR. Tims ammonium chloride per bottle directions. 4 drops per gallon. Figuring with sand and the internal overflow in the tank i only put 300 drops. Now my ammonia is over 8ppm according to my API test. Will the tank still cycle or did this kill the bacteria i introduced? What should i do to get the level down below 4.0ppm?
