If that doesn't reduce it, up the dosage to 1ml per 10gallons 2x per day. once in the morning and once at night.
Here's a better pic. It is clear and gelatinous. It actually shows up better under the blue light. It collects as a thick slime on the surface of the sump after I clean it off the rocks. The skimmer is taking a lot out as well and is leaving a light brown slimy skimate in the skimmer drain jug. I just did another ammonia test this morning and the Ammonia color on the API test is darker than the darkest one on the color chart (8ppm). I have never seen an ammonia spike last this long. 0 Nitrites, 0 Nitrates.

No I have not tried the peroxide yet but was considering it.

Thank you for your help.
