Carbon filters for chlorine
I understand that activated carbon can absorb chlorine and I suppose
How effective are these canister filters one can buy at the local Home
I'm talking about the units that are about 1' high with a screw off
My idea is to fashion one up as a prefilter for my tanks when I change
Would it be a good idea to add a second particle filter element up
how long might they last?
Also - how distructive is chlorine or chloroamines - I looked at the
archives on this topic and I never realy got a good feeling as to how
much it effects my tanks. I can smell the chlorine coming out of the
tap. Often times I add water with no treatment and the fish and plants
seem fine. Also I noted on a bottle of Tetra dechlorinator that it
binds the iron and copper too. Binding iron can't be to good for
plants right? What else might sodium thiolsulfate effect?
