As with most treatments, it is advisable to by-pass the filter during treatments, although nitrifying bacteria seem to be fairly tolerant of of this treatment. However it is a wise precaution to turn the filter off for 3-4 hours while treatments are in progress.
When using Do not allow it to come into contact with metal surfaces as toxic compounds can be formed. You should also wear a particle mask and goggles when handling to prevent injury to skin or eyes.
It should NOT be used as a high dose dip. Its chemical action will cause serious damage to fish.
Turn off any UV lamps when using any pond or tank treatments, and add extra aeration during treatment.
The breakdown of chloramine T is speeded up in sunlight, so treatments are best carried out evenings or on cloudy days.
Note: Water hardness, pH and temperature need to be considered when calculating a dosage for chloramine T; hard water and high pH is associated with a wider margin of safety.
