    Hi there i bought the GVA at walmart

    Ingridents are
    Ammonium Hydroxide

    Will Freshwater fish food work to start the cycle?

    Unfortunately, not. The ammonia can't have any additives like surfactant.

    I got my ammonia at a local grocery store.
    I've heard Ace Hardware carries ammonia wiht no additives.

    I agree with Lucy. Sufracant is soap, I think. You definitely don't want to put that in your aquarium.

    Can't you put a shrimp piece in a sock and put it in there? :;dk
