    Ok so I’m not sure how much I would have to put of the chlorine remover in my 2 litre bottle to top up my tank cause some water has evaporated as I don’t have a 5 gallon bucket or nothing I don’t wanna harm my fish or anything and as well as the temp I’m not sure cause I don’t wanna shock my fish in temperatureImage1559771745.705005.jpgImage1559771772.664675.jpg

    That's ammonia remover not a dechlorinator. 2 different products. That one to me is a waiste. A partial water change would do the same thing.

    Sorry after reading farther it helps neutralize chlorine too. So again sorry on that. Reading over it the ammonia detoxifying thing is its primary function and then as a dechlorinator. .25 ml would be for half a gallon.

    After reading more on it yes its a dechlorinator. Breaking it down 5ml treats 10 gallons so .25 ml would treat half a gallon or roughly 2 liters.

    I use a syringe with out the needle. Its seems to be .05 of a teaspoon but not sure if you have a measuring spoon that small.

    I’ve only got 1.25 ml teaspoon

    It’s hard to eye it .25 ml form 1.25

    It’s hard to eye out .25 ml from 1.25 ml *** but what about temperature idk exact temp or nothing should I just make it feel just about alike the water I’m adding and the water in the tank

    @kallililly1973 any idea how to measure this out? I use my finger to judge temp even for water changes so if its only a top you can try to get it close but its not real important.

    Just kinda eyed it out from the tea spoon since I don’t have any airline tubing I’m just sure my fish can handle a tiny extra drop lol tanks looking nice and isn’t making any noise from the filter now that’s it full thanks for all help everyone !!! Image1559779009.571657.jpg

    Very nice looking setup. You can add water all the way up to the filter output to quiet it down even more and at the same time hide the glass and water level line if u will.

    They sell syringes on Amazon. Here's a pack of 10 for $3.

    I stole a cheap scrubby kitchen sponge from my wife. When the water level is behind the rim you don't notice it.
