Signs of high ammonia levels?

Hi guys, I've read a lot that ammonia is bad for fish and that high levels are dangerous. But I'm not certain what ammonia does to fish- are there any physical signs of ammona affecting a fish?

Burns are a good sign of ammonia poisoning. Gills are usually the first to be affected. The area may look red & inflamed(in gills) and black or deep red(in scales).

oh, okay -phew-
i saw one of my guys get some red in his usually white fins and i was worried that my water change schedule wasn't cutting it.
but i looked his scales and gills (and his tankmates') and they're all fine. so i guess he got caught somewhere or something..
