Re: chlorinated water

Hello Ajit,

Whether it is safe will depend very much on the degree of water
chlorination, i.e. whether a 1:3 dilution will reduce chlorine to an
insignificant concentration.

But it is a dangerous practice -- it is very easy to burn the gills. The
fish won't die -- and thus some people claim that it is "safe" -- but
the fish are quite impaired!

The safe practice is first to neutralize the chlorine or chloramine and
only then use the water in an aquarium.
