If you wish you may use that ammonia stuff as an extra/addition, but there is no replacement for a standard canister or hang on filter

a lot of the time, the ammonia/carbon material you are talking about it used after you medicate a tank. like the above poster said, you can use it....but it cannot replace a bio-wheel or filter pad

Weekly water changes of 20 to 25 percent pretty much eliminate the need for ammonia reducing products.Even these ,,need replaced on all too frequent basis. Much cheaper and faster to do water change with dechlorinator to relieve elevated ammonia which kills many fish.
