I can't seem to find ammonia - well not Pure Ammonia at least. Every where either has the lemon scented or the clear stuff but the ingredients list things other than ammonia. I asked at the counter at the pharmacy but they said they didn't have any. Where else can I look - oh and how much do you need to add and how often? (5ppm?)

I don't have an established tank - if I was to get some gravel from the LFS (from a tank) how much should I get? This is just a 30gal tank which I wanted to get started while I wait to setup my 90gal.
a cup full would do any size tank, the bacteria will spread. I think that he wanted discus and nice plecos so I would do a fish less cycle.
Thanks. Basically I am setting up this 15-30 gal (I think its 15 but not sure) to use to grow plants for my 90gal once its setup. But I figured I might as well start the cycling on this 15gal then I can move the canister filter to the 90gal once its setup, that way the 90gal's cycle will be boosted a. Make sense? I do want to go with fishless cycling. I will stop by the pet store on the way home and see if they will hook me up with some bacteria. :wink: Thanks.
I'll never understand this "fishless" cycling. If you add bacteria but there are no fish in there, how can the bacteria thrive?
I am one of the guilty parties that use "cycle' when starting a new aquarium, or upgrading to a new one. I have NEVER lost a fish to "new tank syndrome".
With fish, their wastes will serve as ammonia and food for the bacteria.
