TM cations in solutions

Why will adding NH3 or KCl etc replace H20 in the TM complex?

Hey, I believe in class, professor Lavelle said that species like NH3, NaCl are electron rich, so they will replace H2O ligands and form coordination compounds. Hope it helps.

So it's similar to the idea that donating electrons provides for a stronger bond than sharing?
