It's a Boston. Most destructive dog I've ever owned. He chewed up a sofa, love seat, several dog beds, baseboard trim and anything that hit the floor. He's 4 now and has finally stopped.

If that's the case then I would buy the ammonia from Ace Hardware. That way you can dose it exactly, no guessing. It took 8 drops to put my 5.5 gallon at 4ppm. A quart of it was 2.49

If it's your hosptal tank filter just run it along side a regular filter in one of the other tanks. That way it will always stay cycled for when you need it.
