Will you be adding pure ammonia or dropping in a shrimp/prawn?

Go to the grocery store and get a shrimp or prawn from the seafood counter. Fresh is fine. I don't think it matters if it was previously frozen. Put it in a nylon bag and drop it in the tank. And wait. And test.
Edit: or get some pure ammonia if you can be absolutely sure that it is free of dyes, perfumes, and surfactants/detergents. There is a dosing calculator if you want to hit 4.0 ppm as an ammonia target.
