Regarding Chlorine, the concentration in the water to
allow your fishes t live should be 0.
If there is chlorine in your system water, on thing is
- Your fish will start to either die or get "sick2 very
Because chlorine will destroy all the gill "braches" of
your fish, that will result in hipoxia and death.
A simple solution is to aerate (us an air pump/air stone
system)the tap water al least for 24h, to remove all the
chlorine, prior to use it as system water (fish water).
What you can also use is an active carbon filter to remove
the Chlorine ions from the water.
the second solution is more expensive but more reliable
Hope I could help,
