I turn the filters off when I do the pwc anyway so I can get the media out and swish it in the discarded tank water but thanks for the tip. You are on fire tonight lol

Hello eco...

Thanks for the info. I learned something new today. Didn't think there were very many municipalites that added chloramines to the water.

I've heard the activated carbon in tank power filters will filter out the chloramines, but that seems to me like it would take time and could cause problems for the fish.

Anyway,

Thanks!

How long has the tank been set up? Do you know about cycling?

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

I assume you've seen this article? It's pretty much titled the exact same thing as you just said. It's probably the most linked guide on the site unfortunately.
I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!
