Help finding ammonia
I've been looking all over, and no one has the right combo.
I've found 100% ammonia, but with surfactants. and I've found 10% ammonia with nothing else on the label showing ingredients. It said janitorial strength on it.
Does anyone have a clue as to where I can get some 100% pure, with out all the crap in it ammonia. I don't think you can order it online, because its a marked item as far as bomb making goes.
I just got a 75gal tank, and I'd like to cycle it the right way.
do you have an ACE hardware in your area? They have the stuff.
It's ACE brand janitorial strength ammonia.
30 gal FW:dw gourami, cory cats, ABN pleco, Colombian & Serpae tetra, nerites & mystery snails
5.5 gal FW: crown tail betta
90 gal FW: Blood Parrots, severums, Jurupari, EBJD, congo tetras, angel, dw gourami, mystery snails

I would not worry too much about the concentration of the ammonia in the bottle. I have a bottle of ammonia which is only 10 or 15% ammonia without any additional addatives and it has worked fine for cycling a few tanks already.
A lot of members here get there ammonia from Ace Hardware as fishmommie has already recommended
If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Dilluted but pure is fine, and 10% solution makes for easily calculating.
Funny this, over here every supermarket and most DIY stores sell it. I think I pay 69 cents a liter. I understand it's also difficult to come by in the UK. I think next time I'm over there I'm going to bring a case or two and flog it to aquarists.
It's readily available in the states but can prove near impossible to find elsewhere. I ended up buying mine off amazon for $8.00. Overpriced yeah, but I cycled my tank without any problems and worries.
The one that had janitorial strength on the label is the one you want. You will not find actual 100% ammonia available to the general public because it is lethal unless diluted. The bottle that said 100% just meant it didn't have fragrance or soaps, etc.. in it, but it was diluted with water. If you don't have an Ace Hardware near you, look for a cleaning supply company that sells to businesses, they will have the ammonia you need and often sell to individuals.
If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I went last night and picked up the 10%, and started a cycle on my 10gal tank.
See how this works out....
