[Killietalk] Chloramine and cyclops
Results of my tests with cyclops and chloramine about one week into it:
- control: cup of stock water with cyclops
- very aged tap water
- 5 cups with various water treatments (Aquasafe, Topfin, Dechlor, Prime,
etc) treated at twice the recommended amount
Cyclops are still alive and well in the control cup, as well as the treated
cups. There are no difference between the various water treatments.
Untreated water kills cyclops within 3-4 days.
Notable is the fact that at the end of the week, none of the cups contained
egg-carrying females (I had started with 6 to 10 egg-carrying females in
each cup). During the same time, in my large cyclop container (with oak
leaves, java moss, and driftwood), there has been a reduction in the egg
carrying females. There are still many of them, but not as many as when they
were collected (cyclops concentration measured by my calibrated eyeball).
