Ammonia level measurement

In cycling a tank the Ammonia level should not go above 5ppm. But, my test kit ( by Tetra ) measures it in mg/l . So how do you convert 5ppm to mg/l ?? Thanks

It is the same. The ppm is ever so slight light more...but we are talking a very insignificant amount.

For example...5ppm = 4.994mg/l

Nubster answered you very well, I have a question on your cycle. I assume this is not with fish in the tank, but fishless cycling?

There are fish in the tank but this is not the ammonia level in the tank but rather just a example. The real level is 0.
