Freshwater Aquarium/chlorine


All the articles I've read say to add chlorine removal to the water. Not everyone has city water. People with their own wells don't have chlorine in their water, but are adding chlorine remover to their water because people who write the articles do not mention tap water from private wells. (:

Don, You are so correct. I have worked in this business for years and because they do not understand the chemical's this is a common mistake. There is no need for ammonia remover. About the biggest problem you can have from well water would be mineral and that is simple to fix with reverse osmosis. Which simply means removing the water in there for instance as you do water changes and replacing it from a different source. For instance bottled water the need to do this is rare but, it does happen. This will be published so thank-you for sharing this information with everyone. Good Luck, Tina
