Ammonia Plays An Important Role In Your Pond

Despite its earning a “bad rap” as being toxic to fish, amphibians and invertebrates, Ammonia, both in its “free” state (NH3) and as the compound Ammonium (NH4+), still plays a key role in your pond, because it acts as a “food source” for the nitrifying bacteria in the Nitrogen Cycle, a very important (especially for plants) biological process. Nevertheless, you should still find a way to “monitor” or “control” the levels of Ammonia in your pond(s).
