I used pure ammonia. you can buy it in gallon form from any hardware store etc. You'll have to look online to find directions on exactly how much.Hagar said:I assumed distilled would be the safest, rather than tap or spring that might have things in it that may be harmful.
What is recommended as the ammonia source? (I do most shopping on Amazon due to price and convenience.)
I understand that too much ammonia is a bad thing, so the Tetra kit I ordered also measures ammonia.
What fish do you suggest (keeping in mind I'm a beginner with a 5 gallon.) I would really like brighter fish with vibrant (neon) like colors.
I'm a pretty patient guy and want to make sure the tank conditions are as close to optimal before adding living creatures. My daughter would be devastated if one of our new friends died due to negligence.
Thanks for baring with me. I'm lucky to get a ton of patient members providing me with measured, essential info. Taking it slow and forming a sound foundation.
