    I've read where some breeders hatch their eggs out in water from
    the tap, leaving the chlorine in to help fight fungus.
    That didn't work for me but I wonder, my water has chloramines,
    so does that mean the tap water won't work for me?

    Well chorlamine is a combination of ammonia and chlorine so I recommend you don't use your water straight out of the tap for this purpose.

    If you want to fight fungus, get methaline blue. Never bypass general aquarium care like removing chlorine and chloramines. You have a hard time controlling what goes into your general water population without some major personal testing so I would never trust the straight tap for this reason alone.

    Methaline blue is what I've been using for over 30 yrs now.
    I was just wondering about tap water. Thanks

    Just curious about how others use meth blue.
    Do you try to remove it before they swim
    like I do?
    And if so, how do you get rid of it?
    Small partials, charcoal??

    I personally only used it when I was doing an egg tumbler. I did a 100% water change and then did the change again the next day to remove anything left.
