Re: [Killietalk] Thiosulfate de-chloroamine in city water
Thanks so much for the offer Charles!! Lesson learned for me, I'll be
ordering a chorine kit this week, it was an experience I never want to have
again, just watching my fish die in minutes, I had to calm down a bit before
calling the county water department to ask what they'd done, will also be
warning all my customers to be extra careful when doing their water changes
