I prefer TetraAquaSafe, as the dosage instructions fit the litrage of my bucket that i use for water changes or Nutrafin Cycle as a second best

well being a cheap skate i use Interpet fresh start its a Koi pond declorinator! it only takes a very very small ammount as its concentrate.works a treat on my discus tanks with loads of waterchanges.

i use to use Interpet aquatium declorinator.but after talking to a trusted member at a aquatic store i realised the Koi mixture was a fraction of the price and did more litres



1 Litre treats 9,092 litre or 2,000 gals

its under the blagdon lable now!

Ha-Ha I'm cheap as hell , no chemicals - I just airate the water for 1/2 hourish, airating the water gets most of the chlorine out, which is what will get your fish.

lol, now why didn't I think of that... though most of my water I leave over night with a heater in to get the temp to the right amount any way.

I then add dechlorinator... will check which brand later as at the time of writing this I seem to have had a memory block..lol...
well it is 00.31am lol...

Yeah, adelaide water had been massivly crap of late. I have been using discus buffer to get the pH right, i normally hate using chemicals but with the pH of the tap water varying so much i have little choice.
