Hope this helps.
Hi, I am using Pet Fram relief coat. Is this considered as water conditioner? It also claim to neutralize chlorine,chlormine and and heavy metals.

Also, after reading earlier posts, look like it's not enough as i have not got rid of chloromine's biproduct of ammonia

alternatively just continue using wad ur using and perhaps install a moving media filter that's geared to eat up all ammonia. u can look at the other sticky thread

beauty is subjective my fellow hobbyist

if you dun agree with it in plain sight, perhaps try masking with plants, or placing such a compartment into your filter itself, instead of inside the tank.

I find this web page informative.
Especially the table whereby they do the comparision and reccomend the brands to use based on our needs...

If possible, invest in a kit to check for the levels of chloramine and other parameters for valued or expensive fish. Direct your efforts to other parameters like food, not too drastic water change, stress from traffic n other fishes disturbing it.

fyi, many are overdosing on prime(a conditioner brand) on aro tanks. From my exp, bros who drop prime on e fins of long tailed fighting fishes, notices a hole in the tail.

Yo All,

From the URL http://www.epa.gov/region9/water/chloramine.html The use of chlorine and chloramines is also regulated by the USEPA a
Maimum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL) of 4.0 mg/L or 4.0 ppm was established by USEPA as the enforceable maximum safety level for chloramines (measured as chlorine,Cl2) for public water systems under the Safe Drinking Water Act, and the level below 4 ppm which there is no known or expected risk to health.

Therefore for a start, we can safely assume that the PUB tap water in SG most probably will not exceed 4 ppm as there will be risk to human health.

Cheers,
S1
