Ammonium Chloride Solution for Fishless Cycling

Choose Options
Select Size
This bottle of reagent grade ammonium chloride is for use when fishless cycling. Concentration is 50 mg/L of total ammonia-nitrogen (TAN). Dose 1 drop per gallon of aquarium water.  Use with One and Only Nitrifying Bacteria.

1 drop equals 0.05 ml so this bottle will treat 1,180 gallons.

Generally during a fishless cycle one needs to add ammonium chloride to their tank 3 or 4 times so this bottle is enough ammonia to cycle aquariums up to 250 gallons.

Some conversions:

1 teaspoon equals about 5 ml which is 100 drops
1 tablespoon equals almost 15 ml which is 300 drops

RatingGreat Product

I wanted to move my fish to a new larger tank, but didn't know where to begin. The instructions on this site were very helpful. I was having trouble locating the pure ammonia that was needed for a fishless cycle. This product did the trick. I was at my door in a couple of days after ordering. I was able to cycle my tank in no time.

Day 19 of fishless cycle using Ammonium Chloride and Dr. Tim's One and Only nitrifying bacteria. Ammonia still the same as day 1, 3.0 ppm, 0 nitrites, 0 nitrates. This is with pH of 7.6, lots of aeration and temp of 86 F. Still waiting... gave 3 stars because it MIGHT still cycle, I don't know

Just used the ammonium with a new 105 gallon tank. Then I used One and Only Nitrifying Bacteria. With 24 hours the new tank was established with the bacteria. Glad I discovered these products.

I ordered this product after being unable to find any pure ammonia in my town. I used it to cycle my 29 gallon aquarium and it only took from Jan 19th- Feb 2nd to fully cycle my tank. My aquarium now processes about 4ppm of the solution into 0 Ammo 0 Nitrites in 24 hours. Very pleased!
