i've been adding ammonia from the standard household cleaner type of ammonia at 4-5 drops/10 gal
for the past three weeks. i've been checking my h20 parameters and i've haven't got any nitrites/nitrates yet.
so today i did some more research and as fear gripped me, i went and shook my bottle of ammonia and sure enough, it foamed up a good 2-3 inches at the top of the bottle.
my ammonia is around 1ppm. i was thinking of doing a 50% water change, waiting a few days and then doing that again. would that remove enough surfactants from the water so it is safe? i couldn't have added more than, what, 4-5 tsps over 3 weeks?
