Is it me or does it really not say on the box how often these ammonia absorbers should be replaced? I think it is me.

So can you tell me please how often? I mean they would not sell it in box packages unless it needed to be replaced.

Ammo-chips are not neccessary, except if needed to bring down ammonia in an emergency.

Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)

I agree with RoK. Unless you have unusually high Ammonia readings in your tap or in case of an emergency, you don't need them.

They are great for cleaning up oil spills!
Fish do not read books, nor care what we think.
