all the reading I've done and I didn't put that together. *chuckle* Clorine bleach. sheesh.

Chlorine is hypochlorite.

so sodium hypochlorite just has added sodium.

Any water conditioner with sodium thiosulfate should work.

Ok great, so now I am drinking bleach (ok I'm not I drink bottled water) but my fish are swimming in it.

How will this affect them, I am just trying to figure out if I am adding enough dechlor to the water. Do I use the regular amount, or double it (such as for chloromine) so far I have been doubling it, unless I am aging the water.

I am not sure if I am adding too much, or not enough :o /

The thing is, before the water people started adding chlorine, LOTS of people were dying from bacteria in the water supply.

You can check out your city's annual water quality report or call them and find out what the average chlorine level is in your water. Most dechlorinators say how much chlorine they neutralize.
