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?
