Love the rock scape. Do the Ace Ammonia. Everyone on this site who has done ammonia says the same thing. It is about as pure as you can get and cheap.

Check the ingredients label first...does it have any surfercants (sp?) in it? if you shake the bottle do you get any bubbles?

As long as the bubbles disappear straight away and theres no other ingredients then youre ok. Thats why I stick to the ace hardware ammonia, we all know thats the "good" stuff lol
