Best way to keep the ammonia production in the DT

Hi gang
Yes, yet another thread. Now that I have my fish in a QT going thru Hypo treatment, and my 120 only has some inverts, snails, hermits, 2 emeralds & LR what would be the best way to keep the ammonia production in the tank so the bacteria doesn't die off? I've been putting a 1/2 cube of frozen brine, is this enough?

Another raw shrimp in a filter sock may be easier to remove and less likely to foul anything. Minimize the food to what the inverts need.

I would recommend a high-quality flake for the time being. Try a little Prime Reef by Ocean Nutrition. IMHO, less chance of adding PO4 or NO3 to the water. Less is more.

Thanx HN1, I'll pick one up when I go to get the power filter for the QT.

Would spectrum flakes work?

I always suggest just putting a few flakes in there.
