    Hello,

    Hobbs, I am really sorry about your loss ... And thank you very much for your warning...

    I have checked the MSDS sheet of the product. The active ingredient of this product, sodium thiosulphate (Na2S2O3) is very effective to neutralize chlorine, but it will ONLY work safely against chlorine. If your water is treated with chloramines, the product will be useless. Since this is a world forum, I don't think it is fair to raise the alarm everywhere since some parts of the world could still be treating their tap water with chlorine (i.e. Mexico) and therefore this product, if used as specified, will be safe to use there... Sadly, your water is not treated with pure chlorine and the use of this product ended up in this tragedy... Sorry about that...

    All over the country, water companies in many area's have switched from chorine treatment to chloramine. And nearly all dechlorinators are manufactured to remove your water of both. There are very few on the market anymore that only remove chlorine and others have updated their products to do both.

    I bet you could ask most of the people on any forum which method their water companies use and most would not know. So, why bother to buy a product that may kill your fish when you have 100 other products to chose from that will do both?

    None of us know which day our water company may decide to switch sanitation methods and it is best to be prepared. If my warning will save one person from buying some crummy product causing them to lose their cycle and kill their fish, then my warning has served it's purpose.

    mainly price, I'll bet that product was much cheaper than Prime
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    I agree lady hobbs. Thanks for the warning. That stinks I'm sorry for your loss Like you said, no one knows which their company uses and can't know when they change it so better safe than sorry. And to loose the cycle in the tank is also a pain in the ***!!!!! For the fish that survived though must be one hardy fish!
    We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.
