I would not use any treatment. Just go to your LFS and buy RO or RO?DI water from now on. It`s not that expensive. Walmart has RO water that is OK to use. One thing about those treatments is that they dont get rid of the bad stuff. They just bind them so that they are not as lethal at the time but they are still in there.

Hi there! Welcome to the forum!

I agree with the above, with that size tank your best bet is to buy premixed water from the fish store or even walmart out of their machines. Adding chemicals is never a good thing and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary. The premixed water will be great too as it will help with any algae issues you may come across from using tap water.

Good luck!!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
