Plain Jane Ammonia?

Does anyone on O'ahu know where I can obtain plain ammonia for fishless cycling? I am setting up a 38g for a couple of angels. I've checked most of the supermarkets, City M, Ace, etc. and seem to be striking out. All they seem to have is the lemon scented with surfactants, etc. Please help if you can!

I suppose I might have to go down that road, but I was hoping that wouldn't be necessary! I'll keep looking around for now.

Check out the natural stores like down to earth or whole foods ammonia is organic and a natural chemical so check those places out!

Aloha tipee,

If you buying the beer, I'm sure I can help piss in the tank! LOL! Just trying to help a fellow hobbyist out!

Cheers!

OpaeGuy and Joanstone: Thanks, I'd forgotten about that trick!
That's probably what I will do if I can't find the regular ammonia.

daboss: That's a good lead. Thanks, I'll check them out this weekend.

And Carl: Ummm...thanks, but no thanks! I'll buy you a beer for your willingness to help me out, though!

Aloha tipee,

LOL! Didn't think so, but was willing to show as much support as I could for the cause! Thanks for the sense of humor in the matter!

Have a great weekend!
