Hello, I have recently bought a 14gal Aquarium kit for my two Betta that I have just purchased. I want to cycle it with pure ammonia but it turns out the ammonia I got from WalMart isn't pure ammonia. The ingredients are: Ammonium Hydroxide and Surfactant. It also foams when I shake the bottle.
I read on some other threads that the ammonia that you want to cycle your tank with is not suppose to do that.
Can anyone describe (or post picture) of what pure ammonia looks like? If you can, also post some places I could find it? I live in Hawaii currently so I have no idea where I would be able to get this stuff? I haven't lived here for long.
Please help, one of my fish is injured, he got stuck in a terra-cotta pot and has many, many scales ripped off. I would like to get him in some cycled healthy water sometime in the next month. I am doing daily water changes in his storage bin with some aquarium salt and he has his plant with him.
But anyways, I would rather not have to ship ammonia from Amazon and pay ridiculous shipping. Thanks!
