Small water changes

    Just a bit unsure on if I do a 10 to 20% water change, do I have to put dechlorinates drops in each time? Or only when you do a big 50% and more change?

    You should dechlorinate any water you add to the aquarium unless you know it contains no chlorine or chloramines (RO water, for example).

    Is there maybe a ratio? Or just drop it in as my LFS gives a bottle with no instructions

    I think its their own brand, just a plain bottle with no labels.. They told me just put in when you need

    I wouldn't use if it it's not labeled and doesn't give specific instructions.

    I really like Seachem Prime. A little goes a long way and it has many benefits and uses.

    Is that an international brand?

    I'll see if its available, I'm in South Africa
    If its not available then should I try find another store to get it from?

    You might be able to order it online. If you can't find it, I'd get another dechlorinator, but one that was labeled and came with exact instructions.
