Chizza Johnny, I'm so sad to here that:( Vancouver has Bren known to increase chlorine levels higher at different times of the year, wonder if that what happened as we have all filled and forgotten prime from time to time.... You were so good to him. I enjoyed meeting him. Hopes the rest of you b day is good.

like all the water treatment that goes towards cleaning water then wasting it on car washes and watering lawns, the city treatment water system is a little screwy if you ask me . thank god for no water meters LOL
I rather waste water on my hobby and going overkill with it LOL
complaining that its overkill are you for real?. you know whats overkill not people wasting water for aquariums. butt people in the lowermain land like millions of people taking a crap in clean treated drinking water

sounds like you went "overkill" after all
karma sucks sometimes eh?


so this tells be this guy is a little sensitive to a debate. think he needs a huge lol
once a week from 25 % then the next week ill do 50% so i think from going to prime then not using it once shocked him big time
i used to never use it, then started using then not using it , so i say if using prime stay with it and don't forget

we increase chlorine levels after heavy rainfall
this would not be one of those times, there is likely something else going on in the tank.

your post was not "debating"
it was just being ignorant.

then you should understand that 3 successive 50% changes is nothing short of silly.

2 successive 50% changes = 1 75% change
3 = 1 87.5% change

why argue that 3 successive 50% changes is good when all it does is demonstrate you can't do math.

i was simply trying to point out wasteful habits so that not everyone else on here adopts them, a community of people can make a difference.
there is really no reason to justify being wasteful

Shawn or some one please step in here??
Mferko, this thread has nothing to do with what your talking about. Please refraim from causing trouble on the forum, i think at this point you are starting to anger quite a few people.

Put it to rest, a comment about Carma is just a B#$%@ move buddy.

On a side note, sorry to hear about the puffer. I was bumbed when mine died.
Go down to the store and grab yourself a fahaka for you B-day
