Re: Water conditioner problem??

Since I wrote the letter in the link, I feel I must respond. Please read 
it again, Daniel. Nowhere did I say "Amquel" produces ammonia. On the 
contrary, it sequesters it until the plants need it and keeps it from 
hurting the fish.

OTOH, I *have* seen hypo kill fish when it breaks the chlorine-ammonia 
bond, ties up the chlorine, and releases a deadly burst of ammonia.
