Hi guys, how often do I have to change water in ma fish tank n hw often do I dechlorinate the water?

Most people use tap water in their tanks; it is cheap and easyto use. Unfortunately (for aquarists), local water companies addchemicals to the water to make it safe to drink (e.g.,chlorine or chloramine to kill bacteria). More recently, concernabout water flowing through older lead pipes has caused some waterutilities to add pH-raising chemicals to the water (because lead dissolvesless readily in alkaline water). Consequently, tap water must bespecially treated before it can safely be used in fish tanks.

Can I use chlorine beech for cleaning my fish tank

Chloramine poses two significant headaches for aquarists. First,chlorine-neutralizing chemicals such as sodium thiosulfate onlyneutralize the chlorine portion of chloramine, neglecting an evenbigger problem: deadly ammonia. The consequences can be devastating tofish. Although a tank's biological filter will (eventually) convertthe ammonia to nitrate, the time it takes to do so may be longer thanwhat your fish can tolerate.

Fish & Aquarium Supplies: Chlorine & Heavy Metal Removers


One common problem that occurs with some of the "fancier"dechlorinators, is that they can leave a buildup over time. This isparticularly of concern in , in tanks where the product has been over used, or in tankswith insufficient . Keeping yourfish in a large enough tank, keeping the tank well filtered, and beingcareful not to overdose the water treatment can help alleviate this -or you could just use a regular dechlorinator without unnecessaryadditives.Even with low exposure, chlorine can hurt aquarium fish. If it's not deadly, the constant pain from the damage it causes can cause stress. In fish, stress leaves them vulnerable to disease. Chlorine has a similar effect on invertebrates. If you accidentally add chlorinated water to your tank, immediately add dechlorinator. The signs of chlorine stress include fish darting around rapidly, gasping or jumping out of the tank. Invertebrates are more subtle. They may show stress by withdrawing tentacles or pulling themselves into their exoskeletons.
