After doing some math, I figured out that 1ml of 10% ace hardware ammonia in one gallon of water equals 26ppm. I also decided to use tetra safe start plus. According to tetra higher than 2ppm ammonia can actually kill the BB(bottled bacteria lol). So I started a 20 gallon high yesterday morning with prime. This afternoon I added 1ml of ammonia to the 20 gallons giving me at least 1.3 ppm but I'm no more than 2ppm with substrate/decorations. Sometimes it's hard to judge colors on the api ammonia drop test. Also I added half the 40 gallon new tank bottle of tss+ and am going to continue dosing. Just looking for some reassurance here Haha. Did I miss anything?
