Water Conditioners

With fish species from such a geographly devirse locations, it is understandable that water conditions which are ideal for one species may not necessarily be acceptable to another. More importantly, our most common source of water, the tap at the kitchen sink, is actually harmful to our aquariums if used untreated.

Tap-water in the UK is treated with a variety of chemicals to make it safe to drink and to kill organisims which might be harmful to humans. The most familar of these is probably Clorine, a highly posionous gas which is used to kill bacteria that can cause tummy upsets. Add to this a whole cocktail of chemicals designed to improve the clarity, colour and even the smell and you will understand why it is less than prefect for aquarium fish.

However, there are a great many processes that we can employ to correct these problems and create the perfect enviroment for our pets.
