Despite this the song remains one of their enduring legacies. The band's only other entry was " Drugs ", which came in at No. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Instead of using a fish to produce ammonia, why not add ammonia itself?. The basic ingredients for cycling a tank are a starter culture of nitrifying bacteria innoculum , ammonia, water, oxygen, and a substrate for the bacteria.
I am assuming that your aquarium has been setup competently, so that it has water, biofiltration media substrate , and aeration oxygen. This leaves the ammonia and the bacteria. A quart costs less than a dollar and might last you for years.
You will want to place it in a container that allows dispensing by drops. Keep it out of the reach of children. Alternatively, some aquarium stores have started to sell bottles of Ammonium Chloride for this purpose. A starter culture of Bacteria can be added by two methods. Some material from an established aquarium can provide the needed innoculum: some water, a piece of used filter material, a decorative object, a handful of gravel.
This shares the disadvantage of the donor media method of bringing in pathogens. However, if the donor tank has been in good health, there may be no compelling reason to avoid donor material. The second method is to use one of the commercial preparations of nitrifying bacteria. I have had good results with Hagen's Cycle TM , but I note that there are many other products available, with more coming on the market all the time.
One added factor not often mentioned is the temperature of the cycling aquarium. Both Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter have optimal temperature ranges for growth and metabolism of 30 - 35 C 86 - 95 F Lawson, p.
Turning the temperature up to this range is not practical with fish in the aquarium, as it is above the suggested temperature for most tropicals Mollys being one exception. However, since we are not subjecting fish to the rigors of higher temperatures, we are free to crank up the heater to the mid to high eighties F , which is the range I use, and probably the highest I would ask my heaters to support.
I have been able to cycle an aquarium in less than two weeks at this temperature. Graphic from: Seachem. One very convenient method of testing ammonia is a product from Seachem called the "Ammonia Alert" TM.
Essentially, it functions as an "ammonia gauge" The Alert is basically a plastic card, held onto the glass with a suction cup. Expect to have in the near future for Bulletin to also to address Pi ping Colors The Guidleline will address: un-insulated line finishes; insulated lines with insulation jacketing; and intermittent markers.

Therefore no one uses A But I agree fully with your comments re stainless steel, especially with regard to CO2 installations. Dear Mr. Andy, Could you give me address of website which I can download literature documents of guides of caculation and choise NH3 piping?
Do you have them? Pls give me? Best Regards, Trong Bach. Here is one link where you can purchase the US version of the refrigerantion piping calculations.atmosphere (in a vacuum). Currently, the only effective way to remove water from ammonia is in a heated distillation vessel (an ammonia “still”). This very negative effect of small amounts of water on evaporator performance has not been fully recognized in the past, but must be addressed during the design of the DX ammonia system. Colmac.
