I am just curious if anyone does chlorine tests on the tap water before they use is ? I have no water tanks to collect rain water so i am stuck with tap water for now. I found a tester on ebay that might work as a general safeguard in case the council has a dosing pump fail or decides to spike the chlorine for some reason. does anyone have one of these ? are they ok or am i better off with test strips or whatever ?
Chloramine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia So reading wiki; you can remove the two chemicals by aging it in the sun for a few days or use a vitaman c tablet. This is for people who use lots of water without spending too much money or none.
I was doing some water changes and some one dropped in to buy some more fish,I said how they going the last lot you got off me and he said yeh ok ,lost a few after I water change...Id like a dollar for every time I've heard that and this is a simple mistake to make and I bet everybody has done it and accounts for a major amount of unexplained fish loses. Any way sat down and intergrigateted him with the usual questions When doing a water change and you are adding tap water to a tank YOU have to treat the water for the whole tank not what you are putting in all the molecule stuff rebind back with the old water and become chlorine again or whatever again. But if you have water in a drum treated you just treat for that amount and then ad into tank. Feel free to ad on here if I'm wrong.........as if I had to ask lol.
