Amazonia

So say my tap water is 7.4 and I'm adding Amazonia to my tank tomorrow. How long until my ph goes Down to 6.4 in a 55 gallon tank and the ammonia released is no longer gaseous ammonia that is harmful and instead the ammonium or ionized ammonia that Wong harm fish?

It really depends on how much amazonia you have in the tank. might take a day or two. It takes about a month or two to fully cycle amazonia and have it stop leeching ammonia. *you needa do water changes too*

Yeah I know I need to do the w.c. And for the ph to drop it should take a day or two?

I used two 9l bags in my 55. And I know that gas ammonia is toxic. But ionized ammonia isn't. My question though is how much will it build up to be toxic (ammonium) not ammonia,
