I never have dechlorinated my water, even when I used to receive city
water. My plants and fish did just fine.

Let's stick with water. Only about half our population is male.

What kind of blow out? I missed that article.

fluoride then, should be safe in small amounts.

In small or large amounts?

I don't have the time or expertise to debate chlorine or fluoride.
Personally, I don't want to drink spiked water. I stopped drinking
spiked water when I moved to Casper now that I get my water from a well.
It tastes better. I bottle it and take it to the city with me because
city water tastes bad.
When I lived in the city, my planted tank thrived on frequent water
changes straight from the tap. I never dechlorinated or defluorinated
any of it. I have a Madagascar plant that grew like a weed in the city
water. I still have that plant and it still grows like a weed in the
well water. Quite frankly, I have no idea why the plant continues to
thrive. All I know is what I see. My plants thrived on a chlorine and
fluoride rich city water supply.
I guess the bottom line here is we can debate this issue until the cows
come home. What works for some aquarists may not work for others.
