Ammonia, the number one killer of tropical fish, is continually produced in the aquarium from fish waste, decomposing plants and uneaten fish food.
Ammonia in the aquarium will damage delicate gill membranes, and prevent fish from carrying on normal respiration. High levels of ammonia quickly lead to fish death. Even trace amounts can stress fish, suppressing their immune systems and thereby increasing the likelihood of disease and subsequent fish loss.
