Toxic Ammonia Chart

before i bought the API Master Test Kit, i had bought a different liquid test kit, that was on clearance for $20 it's called Fresh Lab Deluxe by a company called Red Sea. it worked fine, but didn't include a test for Nitrates. but alot of other ones like Hardness. well anyways, inside the instruction booklet for testing ammonia, they included this chart, showing Ammonia Toxicity levels when at different temps and PH levels. i'd like to discuss this, and hear people's opinions on how accurate this is. attached is a scan of the chart.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
