Ammonium is considered to be the first decomposition stage in the nitrogen cycle. It consists of proteins, which are converted by heterotrophic bacteria to ammonium. In addition, fish excrete a percentage of their bodily weight into the water every day in the form of ammonium. Ammonium is non-toxic, but, with increasing pH-levels, is converted to an ever-greater degree into toxic ammonia. If symptoms of poisoning appear in the pond or aquarium, it is important that the ammonium level is measured using the JBL Ammonium Test Set, in addition to nitrite.
