Yes, it's my understanding that ammonium isn't toxic to fish, however the info on the Seachem site alluded ( to me at least ) that the chemical reaction created both ammonium and ammoia.

For me, my tanks are still too lightly planted for the amount of fish I have, to tackle any extra ammonia. Granted, I'm sure I'm not fully understanding the whole Aqua Vitro line as I've just found out about it & haven't done much research...

The second link is a conversation from a Seachem rep

Thanks for the links - I'm off to read them too...

so based on everything i have read this seems to be a good product. as i understand the science from the guys who understand science, it is a well rounded product line. well thought out, and researched.

as for experience i have not seen any reviews on how well it grows plants, or if it is any better than the other products out there.

I've recently started using Mineralize in place of Equilibrium. My reason being Mineralize is a liquid not a powder. Calcium is derived from calcium gluconate in Mineralize versus calcium sulfate in Equilibrium and magnesium is derived from magnesium chloride. According to Seachem, calcium gluconate is easier for the plants to utilize than calcium sulfate. True or not doesn't matter to me. I just like that it's in liquid form.

If you look across the Aquavitro lineup, they seem to have copied, intentionally or not, the ADA liquid fert lineup. Seachem also lets you know how much you're dosing which ADA doesn't do with their ferts, at least not until this month when they finally released that info on part of their line.

For someone who doesn't want to deal with dry ferts it seems a pretty good choice. I've considered giving them all a try.

I bought them at my LFS because the bottles where larger than the reg Seachem stuff, and they were a dollar cheaper. More for less money wins every time!
