Do a water change, or two, or three. Did you do anything to the MGO, like soak it, or even air it out for a few days? If not, it may have had quite a bit of ammonia in it already. Even if you did soak and drain, each batch is a bit different. Sometimes daily water changes are needed for the first few weeks, sometimes not. You'll get there with patience and water changes.
