greatman, I did read your post and this isn't the first time I've heard of this being used as a cure. However, I have yet to read any positive, long term success with it so keep us posted. I had my lfs
suggest the same while I was looking for new powerheads and they asked what I was using them for, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, the problem with using chemicals to treat cyano
is that cyano
will eventually adjust itself and the chemicals will no longer be effective. Most times it's a short term fix at best, so I'm not sure that could be considered a success. Good luck with it and keep us posted on how it works, a few months from now. Unfortunately, I suspect over time, unless the problem that created the cyano
to begin with is corrected, it will be back with a vengeance and will be immune to your previous efforts. Here are some links to look at. Like with any good battle, know your enemy before you try to wage war against it.
And just for the record, I fail to see how anyone posting here could be considered neurotic. Just people offering alternative cures as well as possible side effects. The only neurotic person I see would be the accuser for over reacting to everyones advice.
That said, lets keep this on topic. Thanks.
