For example, if I change 15 gallon of water that has a 4ppm chlorine\chloramine content I would have to dose 15,000 mg of chewable c .... which maybe ok for an oscar or other larger fish, but for a tetra?

    Maybe I should just throw a big ole peeled grapefruit into my tank at water change time
    about 200mg of pure ascorbic acid powder per gallon (not the same purity as chewables according to this guy https://www.physicsforums.com/thread...ramine.857730/ )

    Aquaculture and aquarium hobbyists use vitamin C in water to help keep fish healthy. They use levels up to 50 milligrams per liter of vitamin C to treat wounds in aquarium and farm-raised fish.

    Lol, my LFS guy says he gets some nasty looks from non-aquarist customers when he opens his Prime container lol.

    Boyds Vitachem ( added to food when eating, water column when not) is my "go to" when treating sick, stressed fish in hospital tank. When fish are sick or stressed they often dont eat or dont eat well and lack of vitamins can lower their immune systems considerably.
    I also use it on a routine basis in all of my tanks: 1 x weekly in water column and 1 x weekly in food.

    If you don't need Prime for chloramine, (just a simple dechlorinator) sodium thiosulfate works very well. I bought some crystals years ago, when a product I bought at the lfs wasn't available because the production company shut down. It was the main ingredient, and I still have a 5 lb NLS bucket full of the stuff. I use 1/4 tsp of the crystals mixed with water to refill the old plastic dropper bottle, and 1 drop/gallon to remove chlorine.
