Answer:

Well for a start there are #NH_4^+# and #Cl^-# ions....

Explanation:

Ammonium chloride speciates in aqueous solution....

#NH_4Cl(s) stackrel(H_2O)rarrNH_4^(+) + Cl^-#

And ammonium ions are a weak acid, which undergoes protonolysis.......

#NH_4^(+) + H_2O rightleftharpoons NH_3(aq) + H_3O^+#

And so we got #H_3O^+#, and #NH_4^+#, and #Cl^-# ions.......
