Ammonia poisoning is undoubtedly one of the leading causes of death in aquarium fish. It is important to know the causes and effects of ammonia toxicity so that the aquarist can recognize and take swift action.Ammonia is always present in our aquaria. In a healthy, cycled tank nitrosomas bacteria oxidize the ammonia quickly. Elevated ammonia levels occur when the levels of bacteria are insufficient to process the amount of ammonia produced. Severely elevated ammonia can be due to a new tank, cleaning a filter with chlorinated water, treatment with certain antibiotics, excess food, a dead fish going unnoticed. Levels of ammonia as low as .25 Parts Per Million (PPM) can cause damage and distress, and ammonia levels of 1 PPM will cause damage, even if the fish don't show any symptoms. Higher than 1 PPM or extended exposure to elevated levels cause irreversible damage and shorten the life of the fish. Ammonia toxicity starts at the gills. The fish start gasping or hovering at the surface…

Many species of stony coral spawn in mass synchronized events, releasing millions of eggs and sperm into the water at the same time. Click the image for a larger view. (Photo: Emma Hickerson)Corals can reproduce asexually and sexually. In asexual reproduction, new clonal polyps bud off from parent polyps to expand or begin new colonies (Sumich, 1996). This occurs when the parent polyp reaches a certain size and divides. This process continues throughout the animal’s life (Barnes and Hughes, 1999).About three-quarters of all stony corals produce male and/or female gametes. Most of these species are broadcast spawners, releasing massive numbers of eggs and sperm into the water to distribute their offspring over a broad geographic area (Veron, 2000). The eggs and sperm join to form free-floating, or planktonic, larvae called planulae. Large numbers of planulae are produced to compensate for the many hazards, such as predators, that they encounter as they are carried by water currents. Th…
