Not if you have fish. 

The ammonia reading probably will go off the top, if you use it in a tank,
and they *will* die. I think a prime source of nitrogen in it is ammonium
nitrate, but haven't actually read their label in many years.

I once really messed up a 55G tank by putting a wee bit in the substrate,
when I set it up. Big time mistake! Took forever to fix it, too.
