I can't find pure ammonia!!!!
I just got a 20 gal to use as a nursing tank, and want to cycle it without fish. I can't find the pure ammmonia in order to cycle it. I've been to hardware stores and grocery stores and can't seem to find it anywhere. The closest I got is the colorless, unscented kind with surfactants in it. Is this okay to use that instead of pure ammonia? Do you guys know a store that sells it?
My store does have pure ammonia, or clear ammonia, which is the same thing, but its comes with surfactants in it. Is it necessarily a bad thing? Do you think it'll be alrite if i use that and then do a 90% or so water change after the cycle? IMO i don't think surfactants should really do any harm to fish.

I'm no chemist by any stretch of the imagination but I do know that some surfactants are known to be toxic to animals, ecosystems and humans. I wouldn't use it, but that's just me. I'd wait for someone w/ more experience to give you the answer before using it.
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
You do not want ammonia with surfactants. Ace hardware has what you need.
There comes a point in your life when you realize
who never did,
who won't anymore....
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past.
There is a reason they didn't make it to your future.
