Re: [APD] Chloramines in my tap water

Do any of you have any information on using tap water containing chloramines
to raise Daphnia? I understand that using the typical chemical treatments
leaves compounds that are bad for the Daphnia.
Any one have any treatments that would work?
Slow filtering through a carbon block filter will remove it without the
Daphnia-killing stuff (formaldehyde-like) that's in dechloraminators.
That said, don't bother. My experience, with moderate chloramine levels
(typically 2 ppm) when I lived in Fremont, was that Daphnia are not
bothered by either chlorine or chloramine, anyway.
