RE: oh help i can't see (adding ice melt)


Ice melter may have KCL in it but I'm pretty sure its not "food grade" or
even "agricultural grade". Who knows what other chemicals are in it? I
would do a large water change and add activated carbon in the water flow
path or filter. I suspect there is some kind of poisoning going on.
