NH3, NH4 and me
Someone talk to me about these two compounds and their "interaction" in the aquarium...How do test kits actually measure ammonia? Is the reading dependent on pH? Does it measure nitrogen quantities in the ammonia molecule? What role does temperature play? Is total ammonia the combination of NH3 and NH4?
this isn't a question about nitrification per se, but rather the role these two compounds play in the process...
Sorry if I'm asking a weird/dumb question. I feel rather dense today.
