that works too, but just check the label at the store before you get it. It'll tell you the ingredients, and if it has anything I listed above then you don't want it.

We'll double quadruple check for you here when you get it.

I'd add 1ml, wait 20 minutes and test and see where you're at. Then repeat until you get up into range. Then you'll know how much each ml is adding and can predict how much to add based on where you're at.

Test your ammonia right before you add so you have a baseline, then just do it.

The brown, without seeing it, is most likely diatoms. It's gonna get on everything and last for a few weeks. This is typical in a new aquarium, as they feed on the silicates which are present in your brand new silicone seams of the tank.

Have kids?

I use an old medicine dropper from some meds my kids took long ago that we had laying around that measures in ml. Also, you can go to your local drug store and just ask them for a syringe. Tell them why and that you do not want the needle and they'll usually just give them to you.
