Re: amonia/um

This reaction may help the understanding of what is happening in our

   NH3 + H+ -->  NH4+

When the pH is below 7, there is an excess of H+ which drives the
reaction forward.  This produces more NH4+ and reduces the amount of NH3
in the aquarium.  Therefore, both Susan and Karen are right.  The NH3
gets converted into NH4+ until an equilibrium is reached with the H+ in
the tank.
