Does this look it would be suitable to use?

Noted it's 25% rather than 10%

ok so too my mind this looks perfect for use in aquariums given the %'s on those trace elements and a lot cheaper (effectively) than Dr Tims

Just need to remember it's 25% rather than 10% ammonia ;o)

Noted bottle is different to the listing and the one I received is from http://en.chempur.pl/

That looks good. :)
It will be cheaper as you won't need as much to get to 2ppm. :D

One to add to the guide as a useful alternative to Dr Tims for others in the future?

@fr499y ?

so 2ml to raise from 0-2ppm on a 250l capacity.

Given the bottle is 250 ml that's 125 top ups ;o)

Just found out you can buy this in 5L bottles for only £29.

Just how many fish tanks would you need to be cycling lol

Guides tab at the top of the page :D

The resources tab is a calculator for how much ammonia to add
