I had the same issue in my 55. Couldn't find pure ammonia so I used fish food. Over6 weeks I never had an ammonia reading ! So I went ahead and added some fish. With 6, then 20 ish fish in there for a week each I am finally reading ammonia but at <.25ppm. Nitrites ansnitrates are 0. So far so good! Its heavily planted though.
