Add the ammonia in very tiny amounts! I used one cap full on my 75 gallon with 40 gallon sump and it brought it to 4ppm.

I agree with spoonman. I used one capful on my 45 and it brought it up to like 10 ppm. Try just a drop or two and then test the ammonia level. Keep adding until it is up to 4 ppm.

Since my tank is a birthday present to my wife, everything I spend going forward is just an extension of my love for her right?

Im currently dosing ammonia to cycle my 55. I added a cap full yesterday even though i dosed the day before, believing i would be further along in the cycle than i am. I tested hours later and my ammonia test came back bright blue. This was surprising...since there is no blue on the scale for ammonia. Just make sure you test before dosing again or youll have an ammonia tank like i do.

Ok. Thanks. I started with 1 ml on my 10 gallon QT and that brought me up to 4ppm. I will try my DT next.
