Will be refering to this often ;) I love it! Perfect for people like me who at the very mention of cycle (even bicycle) makes me cry! Now I just need to think of the happy smiling bacteria and all will be well again :D

This is fantastic, thank you SO much! Just beginning my adventures with a cycled tank...and I've already got too much ammonia...trying to figure out how to fix it. :)
This helped tremendously! :D

Cool

Also, it is important to add that PH has a lot to do with toxicity of ammonia. An increase of 1 PH will make ammonia X10!!

This is another reason to use IAL to condition the water... It reduces my water from 7.5 to 6.0.

Pull the picture up in your paint program, add an arrow and text to the gills and save it. Delete the pic in the post and replace it.

Totally irrelevant to this guide. This guide was made to talk about the nitrogen cycle, not ammonia toxicity. Going off topic will just confuse and overburden people reading it.

Yeah I know. I'm just lazy. It's pulled off my Dropbox so it would be an easy fix by just changing the file but meh.

We already have a sticky on cycling. Having more will just confuse people even more.
