Hey all,

I'm getting ready to quarantine one of my angels to dose it with tri Sulfa. I have put zeolite ammonia remover in the qt filter as its not cycled, and I understand tri Sulfa can crash the cycle anyway. Will the zeolite remove the tri Sulfa meds too?

Cheers.

I always replace the carbon in my qt tank with zeolite before using meds and I have never had issues. As far as I know zeolite only removes ammonia. But be careful if you are going to add salt to boost the treatment because zeolite releases the amnonia when put in a salt solution. If in doubt do without chemical filtration and just keep the load on the filter down by feeding very little for a few days.

Thank you for your reply. Do you mean conditioning GH/KH salts or regular aquarium salt that one would use for ich? I wasn't planning on using salt, but have added conditioning salts as my water is pretty soft from the tap.

Regular salt like sea salt or aquarium salt. If you wish to reuse spent zeolite you put it in a solution of salt water and it releases the ammonia it absorbed.
