It's ammonia, CB. People use pure ammonia to cycle their tanks. It's easier than the fish food/shrimp method.

CB yes it is safe
Ace brand is practically the only one safe to use because it is pure and doesn't have added chemicals in it.

It's way better than using food/shrimp because smelling rotting for 4-8 weeks isn't enjoyable. Lol.

Yep, it's safer than the other fish less ways. It says 10% ammonium hydroxide. Whatever that is, lol.
Do any of you know what dosage I make?

I think someone said just a couple drops of that stuff is plenty potent. Just add and check later on. If you need more, add more. If not then you know how much to add for next time :)

Too little is better than too much.

Oh, OK. I'll just add drops little by little. I asked Olympia a few seconds ago, but oh well! And yes, too much is a lot worse. But I'd like to get a good start up amount. (;

I used this calculator Olympia showed me. It was 3.98ml for 5ppm.
DAYUUUMMM! This ammonia has a strong odor like alcohol! I had to hold my nose, I'm gonna test later. ^^
