using Chemi-Clean correctly?
Ok this is what i did to "provide maximum results" from chemi-clean. I switched off my seaclone, my UV1, but i only removed the carbon from my canister filter so that i could still have biological and mechanical filtration. I added the stated dose and put in an airstone to "maintain the oxygen levels in the tank". I went to the Boyd website and it said that it was imperative that an airstone would be required. What does "oxidization" mean? Does it involve oxygen to remove the cyano
? Who else here has used this succesfully. This is just to remove the cyano
, and i have already done three daily WC
to reduce the nitrates, and i have placed phosphate sponge for the required time. The water changes which have changed about 40% accumulatively have had no effect on my nitrates. My test kit is about two years old, is this a concern of accuracy?
Thank you all
