No. Zeolite is excellent for removal of toxic ammonia. You can leave the filter alone even after the ammonia is deleted and use the crystals as a bio-bed.

Awesome. I was going to get some porous ceramic cylinders to add to my filter, but I guess the zeolite crystals will work as a nice substitute. :D

Pick:

IMHO chemical filtration should not be employed except in anomalous situations which are fairly rare.

IMHO I would procure and utilize the ceramic cylinders in your typical filtration process.
