I got mine from Ace Hardware. My local Walmarts don't carry ammonia and Lowes and Home Depot all have surfactants in them.

One thing I've learned is to shake the bottle. If it suds a lot, it has surfactants.

I don't think they'll let me post the link, so just google "ammonia calculator aquarium" and it will bring up several different links for ones that will tell you how much to put in to start with.

Actually, legally they don't have to list all ingredients in the label. As the above user said, if you see any suds when shaking don't use it. I use Ace Hardware and there are ZERO bubbles when shaken.
