In the end I did a 40% water change, conditioned the water, then re dosed with ammonia. Today the ammonia levels don't seem to have dropped and nitrite still registers as 0ppm. I also did a nitrate test and that looks the same as it did before to be honest so I'm not sure what progress is being made, if any. It seems to be the slowest cycle in the history of tank cycling - a full 24 hours since I dosed the ammonia yet the bacteria don't seem to be consuming it for whatever reason.
