Them aqua pure balls are slow release not instant dissolve. I put a couple of plants in there and turned the heater down as it was a little high.

just thought of something if it neutralizes
ammonia how does it kick start the filter
as the bacteria needs ammonia to feed on
scratch scratch scratch scratch scratch

Don't think they is a product that can eliminate ammonia. If so it would probably be too harsh for any livestock. Normally products like this turn ammonia into non toxic ammonium. this is still usable by the bacteria in the filter though. As for the nitrate, firstly that shouldn't have showed up before the nitrite anyway which is odd. And if its gone now without water changes or loads of plants there to use it up I'd put that down to a false test when it showed up. Nitrate tests are known to be dodgy sometimes.
