I got my answer back:

"the plants been sucking the wastes outta the water.  now the plants source
of "material" namely CO2 been cut off and they have stopped growing so they
shut down their uptake of ammonia.  if water changes arent done the
nitrites will kill off whatever biobugs there are in the tank and/or
filter.  Ingrid"
