Water dechlorinator

You guys don't have to worry, your pH is way below the level at which it stops working. Its more of a saltwater thing. I remember the website I read it on. I read it in the spring. I do know that there was also a post on cichlid forum about it as well. That was also a while back. If you have a natural Tang tank that has the same ph as the lake then you have to worry. I believe I read that it starts lossing its effectiveness at about 8.8 ph. So if you stay below that you are fine.

Be careful with Clorsmax, because if you have a high PH, cloramax will stop working. Cloramax doesn't work very well in high ph water is what Im trying to say.


I would be interested as well as my tap ph is in the higher 7's 7.7 7.8 generally.

Got some research to show that fact?  i am always on the prowl to learn something new.

Of course, it doesnt matter where I live.  Ph = 7 - 7.2,

I use a scoop for a full 125 gallon tank.  less for smaller amounts.  i dont recall where i go that "scienific" measurement.

I use cloramax a lot when setting up new tanks.  You can use it to neutralize the ammonia and thus manage the cycling of a tank.  I only did tht when I had a huge mix up on a fish order that came too early and all of my tanks were brand new.

Mike,

I do like the Cloramx. My question is how do you go about dispensing the product to your tanks?

Takes 1oz per 235 gal of water to remove 1mg/l ammonia present.

Do you test your water before adding product so you don't overdose or do you just add the equivalent of 1oz per 235 gals for the tank size?

I assume as with most dechlorinators that you can't overdose except in extreme cases?

I use chloramex - look further down the jehmco page.

I got tired of spilling gallon jugs of dechlor.

Which water dechlorinator do you guys use? I have about a dozen tanks and retail prices are getting a little to much for the API stuff. I found this at JEHMCO.com and was wondering if anyone used it.
