Qt and hospital tanks donít have the ability to process ammonia and nitrite like our display tanks do since there is barely any area for bacteria to colonize in a bare tank. They require daily water changes to manage these parameters.

If you are treating in the tank, you should never have anything in there outside of pvc elbows.
