Re: [APD] additional fish die off
On Mon, 21 Jun 2004 13:35:47 -0700, John Van Rees <revjohn at spiritone_com>
today I did another 5 gallon water change on the 45 gallon planted tank.
Ph.. near 7 (Out of Tap 7)
Ammonia 0 (out of tap 0)
Nitrites 0 (out of tap not tested)
Gh 7 (Out of tap 0!)
KH 5 (Out of Tap 2)
And again.. fish die!!! I did what everyone recommended... same water
temp... added dechlorinater ( NovAqua) used the same equipment I have
and still 2 dead pairs of rainbows!
Any new suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

Read this page: http://aquascienceresearch.com/ProductInfo/Novaqua.htm
Specifically this part:
"If water is suspected of containing chloramines (a complex of chlorine
and ammonia) or ammonia, the following procedure should be used to protect
your fish and invertebrates: (1) Add NovAqua to protect the fish from
stress, add a protective slime coat and prevent shock; (2) Add Kordon's
AmQuel® to remove ammonia and chloramines from the water."
All Novaqua does, if faced with chloramine, is release the ammonia into
the water. You must use a better water conditioner if you have chloramines.
Use Prime. With it, it's almost difficult to kill fish... ammonia, nitrite
or nitrate won't do it.
