Instead of going out and buying some ammonia, you could have just put some urine in the tank... It's a bit cheaper...

I will add a raw shrimp as ammonia source, and it is always better to wait, the more time that you have a success cycle it will pay you back with a good biological stablished bacteria, also when you will start to stocking, try it to do calm 1 fish every week and see your results.

Esp since ifcyou do the math you know exactly what your tank is able to process in a day. It does take a few more seconds each day than dropping in a shrimp but really its still very simple.

I'm not doubting that there isn't ammonia in urine, but is saving $5 worth urinating into your fish tank?

If your pissing in your tank then maybe you really dont care about the hobby and you should find another. Who would do something so disgusting when you can just buy ammonia?

I suppose that would be one way to do it. I think that is very dumb though. The biggest issue is all the chemicals you would also add to your tank. If you're a smoker like myself, then all those bad chemicals you get from smoking exit your body through your urine. If you're a unhealthy eater, then it's the same thing. Granted one of the big reason you use the bathroom is to get the ammonia out of your system, another reason is to get all the chemicals you ingest out as well. It's much safer in the long run to buy the ammonia, or use shrimp.
