 Hello  everybody,
 
 (I  especially  need  help  from  those  of  you  who  keep  "monster"  sized  tanks.)
 
 Does  anyone  have  any  references  (safety,  side-effects,  dosage,  etc)  about  the  use  of  Sodium  Thiosulfate  De-chlorination  Crystals  in  aquariums?
 
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_thiosulfate
 
 Till  now,  I  had  been  using  the  liquid  "De-chlorinator"  Smile  to  treat  the  water  before  I  add  it  to  my  tanks.  However,  as  the  liquid  takes  30  minutes  or  so  to  complete  it's  work,  I  have  to  first  fill  buckets  and  then  add  the  liquid  and  then  (after  30  mins)  add  the  treated  water  to  my  tanks.
 
 This  system  of  using  buckets  was  working  for  my  1  footer,  2  footer  and  3  footer  tanks,  but  is  definitely  unsustainable  for  my  6  footer  (180  gal).
 
 The  LFS  guys  at  kurla  recommended  using  this  "Hypo"  crystal  which  (they  say)  acts  instantly.  They  say  I  can  directly  add  tap  water  to  my  tank  (using  a  pipe/hose)  and  add  these  crystals  (with  the  fish  still  in  it).
 
 Can  any  of  the  experts  confirm  this?  (and  what  is  the  precise  dosage  of  these  "Hypo"  crystals  (ie.  number  of  crystals  per  liter  or  gallon)?
 
 Thank  you,
 Sid

 Hi  Sid,
 
 The  bottled  solution  you  were  using  so  far  was  nothing  but  liquid  form  of  sodium  thiosulfate.
 Go  for  Hypo  Crystals  without  any  fear,  absolutely  safe  for  fishes.  Pretty  common  with  discus  keepers/breeders  who  perform  daily  water-changes.
 Dosage:  1  crystal  per  10Gal,  will  cloud  water  for  sometime  though  great  thing  for  neutralizing  chlorine  instantly.

 You  dont  really  need  to  wait  for  half  an  hour  for  the  'local'  dechlorinators  to  work.  They  are  sodium  thiosulphate  only.  A  couple  of  minutes  is  enough

 I  am  new  to  using  hypo  so  want  to  know  will  a  overdose  of  hypo  kill  my  fishes.  I  have  a  60  gal  (three  and  a  half  feet)  in  which  i  will  have  to  use  6  crystals  and  a  32  gal  (two  feet)  in  which  i  have  to  use  3  crystal.  Is  that  how  i  am  supposed  to  use  them.  I  don't  want  to  nuke  the  tanks  and  have  fatalities  ???
