I was wondering if anyone uses this to decrease ammonia in their tanks and does it really work. What else is recommended to decrease ammonia? Thanks for any advice.

probably need to give us a link to the item in question or at least describe it more fully. I've never heard of it before, though I have a few ideas of what it could be.

having a healty bacteria colony will do this for you, costs $0, and takes no extra maintenance besides doing your regular filter clean.

if your current filter is inadequate or not cycled you should address the problem rather than adding an ammonia satchel.

besides having the cycle completed, what would be a successful way of adding a healthy dose of bacteria to the tank? :huh:

taking some media from an established tank
or using a bacterial supplement such as stability to accelerate the cycling process

if your tank is new and not cycled you should read up on cycling so you understand the process you need to go through before stocking your tank with a significant load of fish.
