Default QT ammonia remover?

Does anyone use an ammonia remover for their QT?

To be honest, I haven't set up a QT in many years because I have only had a small tank with 2 fish.

I am setting up a large tank again and need to QT. I'll have some media from my small tank in a HOB filter but I know there will end up being ammonia and nitrite build up since I'm going to QT quite a few fish at a time (it's a 75G). I'd like to avoid doing water changes every few days if possible.

I use it all the time. It has been a game changer for me. I put a pack in when I get new fish, and then I don't even test for ammonia in the qt anymore. I change the ammonia remover after a month to a new one. This allows me to overfeed and not have the challenges that normally occur in the qt when doing this. I also run a cycle of prazipro and copper in my qt, and the ammonia remover does not get affected.
I only fill my qt when I am buying new fish, so normally it's 2 days before the new fish are being brought home that I start up my qt, get the temp right, then add the fish.
