    I'm planning on doing a fishless cycle in the (hopefully) near future, but hit a roadblock: How do you know that you've got enough NH3/NH4 if your test kit measures in mg/l as opposed to ppm?

    All the directions for the pure ammonia method give ammonia readings in ppm!

    Insight?

    One milligram per Liter IS one ppm.
