What does ammonium chloride have to do with CO2?

  I should very much like to be able to add some amonium chloride to my tank 
  and raise my CO2 to mmmmm say 30 mg/l.  Unfortunately, my fish doesn't seem to 
  appreciate it very much.  CO2 is a fish anesthetic.  This morning my fish was 
  doped when I let the CO2 get too high (35+ mg/l.)  So I guess it's back to my 
  old strategy of keeping my CO2 around 15 mg/l.

  It's tempting to isolate the fish just to see though.  I don't need no 
  stinking fish telling me how to grow my plants.  But of course, if algae started to 
  grow I would be begging the SAEs, Ottos and others to help me get rid of it.
