You should be able to find it somewhere. Idk where though. I'm in Aus and it's next to impossible to find. You can use a raw prawn or two in a mesh bag as an ammonia source if you can find any. Or start with a prawn while you search for bottled ammonia.

I've found some on amazon, just going to contact the seller to find out how much ammonia is in it, to make sure it's not mixed with other chemicals.
Thankyou for all your help everyone x

Pure ammonia is pretty much impossible to buy over the counter in the UK.

Luckily I work in a school and have access to lab grade strength ammonia.

My advice if you wanted to use ammonia is speak with your local school's science department. Maybe they would give you some if you explained what it's for.

Other than that you could try

cpc.farnell.com

I buy IPA (isopropyl alcohol) from them for cleaning electrical items at work. They might sell it.

Unfortunately, I haven't been to school in four years, and I don't think my college has any with their photographic chemicals...
But thanks for the advice


I washed off my gravel today and put it in the tank, so I am now just waiting on that ammonia so i can start my fishless cycle
