Quick and to the point- when dosing a cycling tank with ammonia, how do you know how much ammonia you are adding ? In other words, how do you convert ppm,'s to milliliters etc. ?

One VERY simple and time tested method is this:
You dose the ammonia, Wait an hour and then... Test your water <-- There's your results.
It's a good way to instill patience also .
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

I.R.S.: We've got what it takes to take what you've got!

Add some, test, repeat as requiredIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
