If one has private well water that they know isn't chlorinated or chloramined, the dechlor dunk following the rinse may not be necessary . . .
And based on the explanation above, perhaps now I can clean my sponges more thoroughly than swishing around in siphoned tank water can do it. Especially since I have an extra bag of biomax instead of the carbon in each filter, so there would still be plenty of BB left, and little danger of losing my cycle from cleaning my sponges this way ... Am I correct?
My sponges really don't get all that clean from just the swishing-in-the-bucket method.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
