According to the sites for the water conditioners that I've actually read into, the effects of their product dissipate in short order. They are just reducing agents anyway.

FWIW, h2o is a chemical also.

What do you mean by "bad tanks"? And yea, it works out fine. But, don't you ever wonder about some of this junk we throw in the tanks without really thinking? Like, I had a jar of freeze-dried blood worms that had a warning that they are a carcinogen. Don't even bother reading the MSDS behind the chemicals we use to treat diseases. It's amazing fish don't float more frequently...

green malachite, I believe. Yea, it really is insane...

And yes, I do realize that water is a chemical. We are nothing but a build-up of chemicals (I'm a chem major after all). I meant "chemical" in the negative connotation, of unnatural species.

This link is word for word with that other one that was posted yesterday. I don't know if any of the information is accurate because it's not cited.

Even still, what is the summary? What does Prime (or any other water conditioner) do that is bad for the tank/livestock?

No clue, hence why I brought up where or not it is even relevant. Anyone can post up an article claiming whatever they want. Especially if it is a mass-produced product.

idk how I feel about it because there are so many things humans consume these days that are not by any means healthy. I drink sweet in low in my tea....

I eat fast food....

People smoke and drink ( which is very harmful to health and not a necessity)

how many things say they cause cancer and we still consume or use them...

How many human medications have side effects but people still have to take them... you know?

Idk... it's kinda one of those things to think about....

according to that link build up sulfurios compounds another thing i think thats over looked is the rise in the increase in chloramines the only way to treat water for fish with that present is a water conditioner
