Thanks for pointing that out! I know I need 10% ammonia with no additives, so my bad for writing "pure ammonia."

I guess I'll see if my sister can order some into her lab before I try the shrimp deal - I'm just not so sure I want a rotting shrimp in my tank. Anyone want to split a 5gal bucket of ammonia? (JK... sort of)

Do you have a big ALS near you? I'm in Alberta to close to Edmonton... I find it very odd you can't get it from there!! Check big ALS online.

Well, I've never seen an LFS sell ammonia. I also checked Big Als, they don't show it on their website (as I suspected).

I would check your phonebook for someone that supplies products to the janitorial field. You may even ask someone who works in an office building or hotel where they get their products. Just an idea.

Do you have a kroger? That's where I found mine. And you can order the ammonia online from aces website. Just a thought.

Hey, I'd give the drugstores a shot. Just remember, surfactants/scents=no, + lots of bubbles = double no. No surfactants/scents=yes, plus water softener (not required) and moderate air bubbles= yes.
