Dechlorinators help to ensure that your tap water is safe for your aquarium. Although ordinary tap water is perfectly safe for human consumption, aquarium water needs to be purified in order for fish to keep any tank inhabitants healthy.
Water conditioners and dechlorinators neutralise a number of impurities within ordinary tap water, including chlorines and chloramines, as well as ammonia, heavy metals and copper.
Some water conditioners such as the Caribsea D-Chlor-It-Max also replace the slime coating and add electrolytes to the water, while also boosting the alkalinity of the water and reducing the stress levels of the fish.
Another way to strip water of its chemicals is investing in an RO unit which will help to purify the water in large quantities, but for smaller tanks its best to use the products on offer in this section.
