I finally talked my LFS into getting some amquel+ yeeaaaaaa!

I have a question. Do I still have to treat the clean water going in for chlorine?



One more question. I've been using something else so how do I change to amquel???

cool just one step not two. Do I put it in the tank after the new water is in or treat the water in the bucket?

It's recommended to treat the water before adding it into the tank, although in my larger tanks I find it more convenient to add it as I'm filling it up because I'm going straight from the showerhead. When I don't have ammonia problems, I strictly use NovAqua+ but after adding fish or whenever else ammonia tests positive, I use AmQuel+ and NovAqua+ together because the NovAqua+ also helps to add a protective slime coat which the AmQuel+ doesn't. Hope this helps ;D

Good afternoon,

I use Amquel + and Nova Aqua + too. Have for many years (before they added the + ). Be sure to read the directions and labels. I'm sure it states everything that the conditioners are meant to be used for.

Ok I have another question.
It takes a couple of buckets of water for my water change should I add the Amquel+ to the first bucket or how should I do it?

Thanks so much for all the help so far.

You must measure the doses accordingly.

huh? I know how much to add for my tank.
I put in enough to treat the whole tank right?
Can I just put that amount in the first bucket of clean water going back in?
Or just wait and put it in when I get the all water back in?

I add enough conditioner to the bucket to treat the amount of water in the bucket.
If I use two buckets of water I treat each bucket separately.

Some members use a python for water changes. In those instances, they add the water then put add enough conditioner to treat the entire tank.

Hope that made sense
