Jehmco is very popular with hobbyist - no online orders call them up on the phone.

They are also a great source for information.


If I remember correctly this is the same stuff Kordens sold for years under the name of Amquel until some sort of contract snafu.

I'm doing 50%+ water changes daily so I think I do need something to remove the chlorine and other chemicals from the water.
I just ordered a eheim pro 3 2080 filter so maybe once it is set up I won't have to do daily changes. I also ordered the Cloram x for when I do change the water. It's better to be safe rather than sorry

Can you add it directly to the tank? Also what is a salicylate based test kit? Will the API master kit work?

Go to the page above - look up cloram-x. 5 pounds lasts a long time.

You can do daily water changes without worrying about a negative impact if the water is the same temp (or nearly so) and if it has been dechlored.

You can do 10%, maybe more, without even dechloring the water.

Do they used aged water or treated tap water? I've been doing 50% daily water changes, with tap water, on my overstocked 150 gal tank and I just add stress coat to remove the chlorine. Is there a better product to use? I was going to use Seachem Prime but was told my ammonia tester wouldn't work with it.

A lot of the fish farmers and discus breeders do a 100% water changes daily.

The fish grow faster and live healthier -

So if you were to do water changes everyday, how long could fish survive with no damage?
