There will usually only be two pressure readings you'll ever see.
One is when the co2 is a liquid, and one when its a gas.

Is ammonia breakdown an aerobic reaction?

I'm not sure if the OP was referring to bio filtration, but, in the case of bio filtration, faster current brings more ammonia and nitrite to the bacteria in less time. By force feeding them you're...

I agree, but I can't say the physics are there for over flow reducing effectiveness.

I'd say, not really, but it depends on how you want to measure it.
