Ammonia is the number one stressor and killer of tropical fish. Ammonia is released into an aquarium in the forms of uneaten food, decaying organic matter, and when fish release it through their gills, urine, and solid waste.
Under normal conditions, ammonia is a colorless, pungent gas that is highly toxic. Ammonia is highly toxic to fish and is usually removed from the water by oxidation by the beneficial bacteria which live inside the filter.
