I think Taz meant pure ammonia that does NOT foam - Taz? (you want pure ammonia that does not have fragrant additives).
Makaila often has great advice, but I have to disagree with adding a shrimp. I tried that when I cycled my 60g. The water got very, very cloudy and my living room smelled very badly of rotten, dead fish. You can't imagine how happy (not) my wife of 38 (almost NOT 39) years was!!! LOL. Proceed at your own risk.
Also, unless you have a friend with an established, healthy aquarium, for a modest cost, I recommend one of the bio-seed products on the market. Tetra SafeStart, Seachem Stability, API QuickStart to name just a few.
