Thanks for the warning and the tip Wright. The Toronto waster supply has
major problems in the summer due to algae blooms in Lake Ontario and I'm
almost certain that they use chloramine to treat the source water, with the
levels rising in summer to "smelly" proportions (sometimes the tap water
smells like a swimming pool).

Would Seachem's Prime work the same way as Amquel?
