Too Much Amazonia?

Hey Gang,

Iím 24 hrs into cycling my 30Gallon tank. I used (2) 9Liter bags of Amazonia normal and (1) 3Liter bag of powder on top. My ammonia level after 30 hrs is between 4 and 8ppm. I did a 20% water change this afternoon. Two questions:
1. Is this normal and how long can expect high ammonia?
2. How long should I run before first filter cleaning?

The ammonia levels are going to be very high so your in the normal range, but why aren't you following ADA guidelines which calls for 1st week 50% WC everyday, 2nd week 50% WC every other day, 3rd week 50% every 3rd day and 4th week and so on 50% once a week.
