Yes, that looks good. Pretty pricey. Think the quart of ammonia from Ace is about $2

ammonia has a pretty long shelf life so its not that big of a deal, but unless you clean with it you're going to have ammonia forever, you get a quart for 2 bucks but only use 2 tablespoons after an entire month of dosing if even that... or use the dr tims stuff premeasured(which is what youre paying for) to get you to 2ppm for each drop/gal. it'll make it through your cycle.

i would probably get one, if you call them they'll steer you in the right direction. but im pretty sure a bottle should set up a 20gal easily. a little bit goes a long way.

yeah, just 1 of those bottles will work. 4 capfuls of the ace stuff doses my 125G to 4ppm. I think on the directions it mentions dose size by volume of water etc.
