Add a few pellets of an ammonia absorbing compound, maybe some activated carbon, to the bag. I know Ive ordered fish in the past and had them come in bags with 5 or 6 black and white pellets in them, and I just assumed thats what that was, I never asked the shipper.

Also the fish produce ammnonia just from breathing, whether fed or not. Maybe go a day or two without feeding just to prevent too much waste, but 3 seems excessive.
