 I  never  used  granuals.  What  I  am  using  is  a  liquid.
 
 Normally,  I  tend  to  wait  for  about  5-10  minutes  before  putting  the  water  into  my  Aquarium,  no  harm  caused  so  far.

Just  got  a  question..  can  we  use  the  De-chlorinated  water  /  stored  water  (after  running  airstone  for  24  hrs)  for  a  Discus  tank..  instead  of  RO  water?                

 
 You  can  surely!

 +  1  VishaalDalal  for  bringing  up  this
 
 I  was  just  searching  all  over  the  net  before  we  can  find  a  cheap  solution
 
 Branded  Products  for  example  (Easy  Starter  from  Azoo)  mentions  that  their  Dechlorinators  remove  ammonia,  chloramines,  residual  chlorine  and  heavy  metals.  But  the  price  is  250  bucks  for  120  ml
 
 We  have  been  avoiding  buying  those  Rs  10  bottles  sold  by  LFS  as  dechlorinator  and  been  using  sodium  thiosulphate  crystals  to  remove  chlorine,   
 
 Read  this  on  chloramine
 http://www.iuhoakland.com/Chloramine.pdf
 See  Page  2  point  5
 
 It  says  that  Potassium  Metabisulfite  (aka  Campdem  Tablets)  removes  chloramine
 Wikipedia  also  confirms
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campden_tablets
 
 Now  If  someone  or  any  of  our  expert  here  have  tested  and  used  Potassium  Metabisulfite  can  you  please  give  us  your  findings  and  experiences
 
 Percy  -  Please  check  if  this  is  available  at  Dava  Bazaar
 
 Thanks

 Continuing  from  my  post  above...
 
 But  Potassium  metabisulfite  splits  Cloramines  into  two  components  Chlorine  and  Ammonia
 Read  the  coloured  post
 http://www.mombu.com/aquarium/aquarium/t-using-potassium-metabisulfite-to-remove-chloramine-dot-live-figure-fish-2883589.html
 This  would  make  us  search  for  solution  to  remove  ammonia  too
   
 Then  I  read  about  AmQuel  what  it  contains  and  reached  Wikipedia...An  Aquarium  Wiki  site
 http://www.theaquariumwiki.com/Water_conditioners
 and  it  seems  that  Sodium  hydroxymethanesulfonate  (NaHOCH2SO3)  will  detoxify  both  chlorine  and  chloramine  completely.  This  in  found  in  products  called  AmQuel,  ClorAm-X,  and  Ultimate.
 
 Now  if  we  have  to  find  a  solution  we  will  need  to  have  to  create  a  Sodium  hydroxymethanesulfonate  mix  with  water  ie  ?grams  to  mix  in  ?ml  then  what  will  be  the   dose  for  our  water  in  the  aquariums.  
 
 Solution  1
 -----------
 I  came  across  this  recipe  online  for  water  bed  conditioners
 http://www.ehow.com/how_4441156_make-water-conditioners-waterbed.html
 
 8  cups  distilled  water  (8  cups  =  1.8  ltrs  as  per  Google)
 2/3  cup  sodium  thiosulfate
 2/3  cup  sodium  hydroxymethanesulfonate
 
 After  Mixing  one  of  the  above  in  the  1.8  litre  solution  store  it  in  an  airtight  bottle.  
 
 The  dosing  for  the  waterbed  is  1/4  cup  liquid  per  100  gallons
 Therefore  the  equivalent  dosing  calculations  translate  to  :-
 15.6  ml  for  100  Litres
   3.9  ml  for   25  Litres
   1.6  ml  for   10  Litres
 
 This  seems  to  be  one  solution  to  remove  both  chlorine,  chloramines  and  the  ammonia  from  chloramines  too
 
 What  do  you  think  ?

 First  of  all  how  many  of  us  have  tried  to  KNOW!  the  amount  of  chlorine/chloramine  %n  our  residence  water  tank  ?
 
 How  many  have  simply  filled  a  2'x1'x1'  tank  and  let  this  same  water  remain  there  to  get  cycled  ?
 
 How  many  have  tested  that  same  water  for  chlorine/chloramine  after  cycling  that  water?
 
 how  many  of  us  understood  the  concept  of  2  cycles
 
 1.  Bacteria  Cycle
 2.  Nitrogen  Cycle

 Hi  Pio
 
 Yes  I  have  ordered  some,  and  the  other  powder  works  well  also.  I  have  kept  the  box  and  not  returned  it.  I  decided  to  use  it.  It  is  effective  no  doubt.
 
 As  soon  as  I  get  the  above  one  I  will  inform  you.  meanwhile,  I  can  give  you  some  Potassium  Metabisulphite.
 
 Also  if  you  have  the  product  name  of  Sodium  hydro....  get  it,  I  will  search.  Thumb Up
