I knew they wouldnt persay help reduce levels, but I thought theyd be a good addition because theyd eat any leftover food from my frogs that finds its way off their plate. I have duckweed on the way because I read its good at absorbing that stuff too. hopefully it works like anacharis!Rtessy said:Shrimp are very sensitive to ammonia and nitrite, and won't really help get rid of it.... at all. You'll want to look into more plants for that. From my experience, anacharis is extremely helpful with this and grows easily. It's one of the few plants I've found that absorb not only nitrates but ammonia and nitrite
*gasp* did you just say plants aren't alive?? How dare, they have feelings tooFanatic said:Okay, I just have to clarify something.
You cannot put any fish or anything living to your tank to reduce ammonia, living things only add to it.
