Unhappy I dunno if my ammonia is safe for cycling?

I don't have a Ace Hardware where I live, the only ammonia I have found that doesn't bubble when I shake it is this one.

HOWEVER, I have a problem, It says "Ammonium Hydroxide, Surfactant" (thats it) for the ingredients. but when you shake it, there are ZERO bubbles, and when you have it on your fingers its the same "texture" as water, and I smell NOTHING but the ammonia. Its REALLY strong haha. I dunno then? Every sign says its ok but that is on the label? Is there so little surfactant that there would be no outward sign of it therefore its safe? Or despite it seeming totally safe, if that is a ingredient can I not use it? Its really my only option in the way of ammonia : (

I heard you could use a shrimp to cycle. How long does this take in a 10 gallon tank as opposed to ammonia?
