Exacte mundo! I propose we drop this subject now and concentrate back on
live-food topics.

Wright, what concentration of Amquel are you referring to? I use 16 ml per
100 liter, which can be written as 6,250:1 by volume if I am not mistaken.
Why do you use such such a high concentration (i.e. 125:1)? Or am I
interpreting your concentration completely wrong?

I start with vigorously aerating tap water for a while, followed by adding
6,250:1 of Novaquel; waiting a while whilst continuing vigorous aeration and
followed by adding the same concentration of Amquel. I never experienced any
problems this way.
