    I think any dechlorinator is safe. If you want to be super sure you can use Repti Safe by zoo med, or Flukers--But I think they are all the same. I've never had a problem with mine and my frogs.

    OK, is it weird that my tank cycled in 1 1/2 weeks? I have 0ppm Am, 0ppm Nitrite, and 2ppm Nitrate for 2 days now.
