I can't find plain ammonia

I need to do a fishless cycle and I can't find any ammonia without scents. Where can I buy some?

If you don't have an ACE nearby (not everyone does) try the Dollar Store - that's the only place I could find it locally.

Walmart and home depot never seems to have it. Ive heard that dollar stores are a good place to look. If youre in canada Ive seen it at safeway and save-on foods, thats where I got mine.

What I find at Wal-mart locally does not list surficants. There seemed to be no list of ingredients, but when I shook it, there seemed a lot of suds. I passed on it as an unknown.

If it has additives, definitely pass on it. But Ace for me as well. I have had the same bottle for 10 years now. Not sure if Ammonia goes bad or breaks down, but it definitely still has that kick to it.
