Default NO3 and NH4 toxicity

Seems that very high levels of NO3 from KNO3 would be required to harm
fish but very very small amounts of NH4.

So is providing more fish a better way to add N vs KNO3?

I think the limited oxygen exchange capacity and high oxygen demand of
planted tanks at night is an even better argument for using KNO3 for
nitrogen-hungry plants rather than overstocking.
