 Subject: Killing Daphnia with "Amquel."
 There has been a thread on this subject, lately on the killietalk list, that
 deserves a mention here.
 Mach Fukada pointed out that "Amquel" seemed to kill his Daphnia. Since I
 had suffered some mysterious crashes, I tested it. Sure enough a glass of
 Daphnia, Ostracods and mosquito larvae left alone survived nicely, but one
 with a strong solution of "Amquel" (125:1 water to "Amquel") killed an
 identical glass overnight. The Ostracods survived, but everything else was
 dead the next day.  >>

Do you think old aquarium water orginally treated with Amquel is safe to add 
to a daphnia aquarium?
