Water conditioner OD?
I have a quick question. Would it harm my fish if too much water conditioner is added? This question has been lingering in my mind for a while now. I have a 2g hex tank that has an UGF and a power filter. I noticed that excessive bubble would cover the surface of the water if I add slightly more water conditioner in the water. Is it necessary that I do a partial water change with normal dose of water conditioner?

A little extra will not hurt anything.

What water conditioner are you using, just out of curiosity?
Apparently some leave a film on the water that allows bubbles to accumulate. No ill effects though.

I am using tetra aquasafe for my smaller tanks! It's one of those trial package that last forever. I also have API tap water conditioner for my community tank. What do you recommend?

prime for me. OD a bit doesn't hurt anything--When i do a WC i use 5ml of prime(about 50 gal worth) on every tank, regardless of how much i change(generally only 10-30 gal)

I have heard you can overdose but you would have to put such a large amount in most people will never add too much. I have never given it much thought, what would happen say if I poured in a 500ml bottle of prime in a 100gal tank? I have no idea....

I use API stress coat. By adding a little more, you can get a better stress protection plan for your fish.the statement below is false
the statement above is true
which one is true?

Some can be overdosed some cant, just depends on the brand. The only one I could think of that I know cant be overdosed is Amquel . Says so on the bottle but I'm sure there are others that cant be OD'd. Small ODs shouldn't hurt anything, pour a whole bottle of conditioner in and you got problems.Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
If everyone is thinking alike , then no one is thinking.
