Product Description

In aquarium water, ammonium(NH4+) is produced by the bacterial decomposition of uneaten fish food and plant matter as well as fish waste. Although ammonium is an important nutrient for plants, depending on the pH level, it can convert to ammonia (NH3), which is toxic to the fish.

Aquarium water  contains more ammonium at a pH below 7, increasing the content of poisonous ammonia with Higher pH Levels. Even in small amounts of 0.5mg/L, ammonium will still pose a threat to the fish with symptoms such as  rapid gill movements, nervous swimming and loss of appetite.

In higher concentrations from 1.0g/L and above it can be lethal Corrective Action If Ammonium  is detected, a partial water change must be first carried out. If necessary, the water pH level must be lowered to avoid the build- up of dangerous Ammonia.
