Ammonia dosing

Hi all, I was wondering how much pure ammonia I should dose for my 125g. I have been putting in some shrimp cubes to keep the cycle going until I got my pure ammonia.

Thank you!

I would add say 3 teaspoons and then test. If it's not enough then you can go teaspoon by teaspoon until you get where you wanna be. I once added a cup of ammonia to my 29g tank to cycle it, so please go slow and dont over do it at first. I will add that my tank did cycle even with the ammonia being so high.

Wish i had an exact answer for you, maybe someone else has the computation for it.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My ammonia says "extra-strength" so I only added two to start out. Thanks!
