everything i've come across ammonium is safe, but ... you can't remove/process ammonia to get only ammonium, it's fraction ratio thing, remove X amount of ammonia, the ammonium will just balance out till the same ratio exists again (i dono if i said that clearly)
i don't know if this would be good or bad as a low ph (i think 6.4 or 6.2 and lower) your tank will have no significant ammonia, even if it's all ammonium, it will stay ammonium and you'll have happy fish... a test kit changing ph and testing will then give a higher reading then what your tank is actually experiencing.
again, this is just a sudden thought, does not mean it's real
Well I do have high pH..Are you saying that because of this that means that what's in my tank is actually ammonium?
