If you pay close attention to it and follow the procedure it should be fairly simple.
If you have a friend with a tank,just get some gravel and put it on a media bag .Place it in your tank under your intake and you are good to go.

I really am not sure if they are the same or not.
With ammonia it is real simple to do.
The hardest part is finding the patience.

Going to change the water to lower it to zero and remove the cloudy ness!
Then I will test again!
