Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

I would think it would be fine to use in a QT tank. You do need to get the biological filter working, however...

yes i agree. i am just looking for a way to remove the ammonia without stressing the fish with a water change. my concern is does the amrid release something into the water that would be harmfull to the fish. hagens web site says amrid is for fresh water only.

Any Ammonia removing Agents are null and void in SW.. The SW reacts with the chemicals and makes them useless... Atleast thats what I have read places... It was stated that they are for FW only as the SW interfers with the Ions in the active ingredient...
