Quite contrary, ammonia spike will be evident when altering natures time period for nitrosomanas bacteria to break down ammonia to a less toxic form called nitrite. Then nitro bacter further breaks this still toxic form of nitrogen. To nitrates.

Most of your posts don't even pertain to the subject, including this one. The Op's tank is cycled. he does not need to build a bacteria colony, nor is it smart to wait it out and let his expensive fish suffer through it. Feel free to leave your hundred dollar fish in toxic conditions, waiting for mother nature to take her time, but it's BAD ADVICE.

+ 1 for Doug,as he has said your just torturing the fish.We would do water changes to help the fish survive the toxic levels of amm and trites.
