What is ammonia?

Ammonia is excreted by the fish as a waste product. It is extremely toxic to fish, but is broken down into less toxic nitrite by the beneficial bacteria in the filter of your aquarium. Ammonia is most toxic to fish when the pH is alkaline and the temperature is high, so it is most dangerous in hard water aquariums.

What is nitrite?

Nitrite is produced by the beneficial bacteria in the aquarium and filters as they break down harmful waste ammonia excreted by fish. Although not as toxic as ammonia, nitrite is still very damaging to the health of the fish. Nitrite itself is in turn broken down into nitrate, which is much less harmful to fish.

What is pH?

pH is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of the water in your aquarium. The pH scale runs from 1 to 14. Very acidic water is pH 1 and very alkaline water is pH 14. Neutral water that is neither acidic nor alkaline is pH 7.

The key to sucessful fishkeeping is good water quality.

Winner of the Water Treatments category in the PFK Manufactures Poll 2019.
