Ammonia Eliminating Preperations

What benefit does performing water changes to reduce amm/trite/trate have over using things like AmQuel + etc...

Products like AmQuel et. al, are merely band-aids for poor water parameters. They do not actually correct the problems, only cover them up. Adding chemicals to a tank is never ussually a good idea anyways. Water changes are still your best course of action, especially in SW.
