Using Ammonia Remover along with Tetra AquaSafe
When I change the water in my coldwater tank I always use Tetra Aqua Safe and it has always done me well. I have been handed a bottle of Interpet Ammonia Remover, now I am wondering if this is ok to use along with the Aqua Safe or if it does a similar or same job?
Would anyone recommend using it or suggest staying away from it? Is it worthwhile?

Tetra safe start is the dechlorinator to remove chlorine and chloramines.
That ammonia remover would be if you had an emergency where the ammonia spiked. I wouldn't use it anyway when a water change would take care of rising ammonia.

I haven't tested the levels, as I say I don't have a kit at the moment, but the fish do seem to be healthy and are eating as normal.

If you have ammonia in the water, that stuff should help
I would also be concerned as to why there is ammonia in the water in the first place and try to figure the cause so it can be fixed. That is usally a sign that something is wrong in the tank or the tank is not cycledIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Yes - new water for any fish should have water conditioner added to it unless it's well water with no chlorine in it.
If you don't have a tester yet to check your water parameters, how would you know if you have ammonia or how high it is?46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted cory catfish, cherry barbs, guppies, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants

Ammonia remover should only be used in an emergency as stated above, when ammonia is detected by a test kit, and, is not brought down to safe levels quickly enough by water changes. This is to be used only to save the lives of fish in such a situation, otherwise, a cycled tank should be handling ammonia for you.
