Ammonia burns start in the hills and fins, they are not black (unless they are healing) but red. These are not ammonia burns, however if you are not cycled (parameters will help determine this) ammonia can still harm your fish (you won't see gill burns right off but the fish will appear to be laboring to breathe and most like less active).
