Source of nitrogen: plants. Is it OK

I found a garden fert where source of nitrogen is wheat, field mustard, soy, barley etc, does this contain ammonium? This has been the only fert without urea I have found. Im a bit afraid to use fertz including ammoniun nitrogen since I have some bottom dwellers in my tank so I wonder if this might be a safer choice.

Doesn't sound good. Got a product name or link?

KNO3 is free of urea and ammonium. Good stuff, pretty safe when applied correctly.

i thought Seachem N also contain ammonium. IME urea does not cause any problem if you know how to apply it.

I guess I dont understand the ramifications of "Ammonium/urea". Explain.

Oh, Im sorry I havent replyed this, thank You all. Well, I bought the fert and used it as freezed with water. It worked oh-so-well and caused no harms at all. I didnt get long time experince with it since I sold the aquarium and havent used that fert since that. Now I do use fertsticks for room plants, inc. ammonium, they work just fine as well.

Urea is urine, ammonium is a "type" on N (as nitrate and nitrite are too), urea contains ammonium as a source of N.
