theres one in harb, ill have a look tomorrow for you but a few people have mentioned its hard to get because they use it in bomb making.

Ammonium Hydroxide : UK Chemical Suppliers, Buy Chemicals Online

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jeyes-Ltd-Kl...ref=pd_cp_kh_0

seems like everyone who bought the amazon one also bought the freshwater test kit so must be ammonium hydroxide (the one you want)

First your ammonia shoots up, then your trites, then your Trates. It took my 60g approximately 4 weeks to level out at 0ppm ammonia and trites. Don't water, and don't add anything. Now sporting some delicate fish with a strong bio capacity!
I agree that raw prawn or shrimp is a good source of ammonia its just not controlled enough for me, i wanna dose and know I'll be hitting exactly four ppm, and lets be honest 5 bucks is peanuts!
