Sources of Ammonia other than livestock.

Hi


I want to run a planted tank without any critters or fish but I know plants need ammonia, what can I use other than fish food.


The tank will be a 5 gallon Aquael cube, the light will be a Aquael leddy smart 2 PLANT

This is the fertilizer I will be using.

Cool Ammonium Chloride

Dr. Timís Aquatics Ammonium Chloride, or Fritz PRO - Ammonium Chloride; one is liquid to be added in drops, the other powder to be measured according to included instructions.

Plants need nitrogen not necessarily ammonia. Plenty of people run planted tanks without critters/fish.
