Nitrates and Crypt Melt


I just received my monthly aquarium club journal, in it is an article 
which proposes a cause for crypt melt.

Has anyone ever attributed Crypt melt to nitrate intake?  The 
author's proposition was that when Crypts take in nitrate they rot 
from the inside out.  He didn't call it crypt melt, but it seemed a 
natural to me.  

He also argued that ammonium was a much preferred food source over 
nitrate for plants, any opinions on this?

Sorry if I've missed this is a discussion before.

PS Has anyone received an AGA pub. lately?
