Re: Plants & Chloramine

Boukman asked if tap water chloramines damage plants?

It is likely that harmful effects are produced at different
levels for different species. The only thing that I have read
to date is that 3 ppm chlorine is detrimental to some plants.
Generally chloramine is less toxic at a given concentration
and for a given duration of time than chlorine. However,
chlorine dissipates from the aquarium within 24 hours or so,
while chloramine hangs around for a fortnight or more.
