Curious to find out if aquariums or certain products are likely to cause allergies for people sharing a room with fish. I've tried web searches with "aquarium" and "allergy" and most of what comes up is fish are the perfect pets when you have dog/cat allergies.
I've had bad allergy/sinus issues the past several months and I think it's related to the aquariums.
We currently have two ten gallon and one 75 gal
(in our main living space.) We're noticing strong odors when using Marineland Bio-Safe/Bio-Coat while doing water changes. The smell lasts for a few days and it's terrible. We started using Bio-Safe/Bio-Coat instead of el cheapo dechlorinator and Stress Coat last autumn but the smell is concerning me.
Is there a certain product that is the best/safest to use for water treatment/changes?
What are some of the main rules to having a tank just to cycle water to have to use for water changes so you don't have to treat a bunch of buckets of water to use for vacuuming/changes.
I'd really like to cut down on the "toxic" odors around here... and hopefully reduce allergy problems.
