Go to ACE hardware and look for janitorial strength pure ammonia. Wal-mart doesn't have it.

Yes, listen to HomeDog98.

If you get an ammonia product elsewhere, make sure there are no other ingredients like Detergents or surfactant. Otherwise you'll be emptying your tank and scrubbing it. I cannot stress that enough!!!

That's absolutely the right stuff . Thanks for doing a fishless cycle.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

It's no prob doing a fish less cycle for me it's cheaper and more healthy for the fish plus it gives me time to find and save money for fish
