AMMONIA?

Does Ammonia hurt inverts? (Snails, Shrimp, Crabs?)

ammonia is never good for any system, no matter what is in the tank.

First, where do you stand on the tank? Have you cycled yet? If you just threw some rock and fish in there, we need to get him outta there, so tell us a bit more about what you did to start the tank.

If you have any questions about anything, there is a lot of help on here and you can even im me on any messenger, macatua. Be glad to help out.

Prime is not gonna help if the tank is not cycled. It is kinda snake il if you ask me. Even if it is cycled, don't think it will do much long term kinda quick fixes. IMHO

Does Ammonia go away by itself with time but without any water change? I don't have skimmer. Tank is three weeks old with 20 lb new LR, 20lb old LR, 100lb old live sand plus a few hermit crabs. The old sand smells kind of bad when I pour them in. Ammonia has reading of 3 since last week.

Your tank is cycling. Here is a link to understand the nitrogen cycle better.
