This is a fish in cycle, and my conditioner says it kills ammonia, would this interrupt the cycle or slow it down? When i clean about 25% of my water, i have to add the conditioner to tap water, i usually put it in a gallon, then pour it into the tank. Would adding the water that has the conditioner kill the ammonia from the water that is inside the tank?
