You use it as a conditioner during your weekly water changes. Prime is much much better. When I started I was using Amquel Plus but as I grew in the hobby along with my tanks I switched to Seachems Prime.

You don't wanna just add Amquel to your water to take the place of water changes. To lower nitrates a water change would be needed. All these products do is make them less toxic. Nothing replaces a good weekly maintenance routine.

Why would you wanna stop water changes? I wouldn't recommend doing that. NOTHING can replace a good ole fashion water change. No chemicals are gonna take the place of fresh water.

Won't work you can't replace wc. It's like going to the bathroom and never flushing the toilet, even the toilet needs a wc.
