My CRS tank (6gal edge) was leaching ammonia for 2 months. After I introduced my RCS breeding colony a few days later, I had an ammonia spike in the middle of the night, and wiped them out. Be sure to lightly stir the soil a little bit to help release the bubbles. I haven't read anything saying ADA Amazonia is only good for a year either. You can look through my thread down there.
