Hi, I'm doing a project in chemistry focusing on the chemistry of aquariums. I am wondering if it would be okay to add a small amount of pure ammonia to my fully cycled, stable aquarium to measure the fluctuations of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate over time. I have thought about putting some of my media in a separate tank to test this but for the purposes of the project I need the complete ecosystem, fish, plants, and all. I would only be adding a very small amount and the ammonia would likely be cycled out quickly. Please let me know what you think.
