Since I wasn't sure I erred on the side of caution and did the PWC. But, I would be interested in a final answer on this matter. How high is too high when cycling?

From what ive read sewage treatment plants require the same bacteria as aquariums to make the water safe to drink and operate on 40+ppm ammonia, the factor that kills bacteria is ph as the high ammonia somehow raises the ph or tje ph is raised to accept more ammonia and the higher ph is what affects our precious bacteria. Basically as long as ph stays constant your bacteria should be ok
