Please forgive me if this post should have be made on the "Other Websites" forum, but I wanted to make sure everybody see's this.

By accident, I came across this "Talk Radio Link". What it is, is prerecorded radio shows about keeping tropical fish. After clicking on the link above, just click on a date at left side of the page, then choose a segment about a subject you may be interested in. Your windows media player will pop up, and you can then listen to the show.

You can listen to the show while surfing the web, even while you are visting this forum. I'm listening to it now

It may have a few too many comercials, but hey, its free, and you just may learn something.

Give it a try!!

These are the guys (2 brothers) who swear you can do a partial water change without adding dechlorinator so long as you change 20% or less.

They don't no much about planted tanks but they KNOW fish. They also have a web site where they sell fish...

I've had good luck with them.

Take care...

I don't know what kind of nasties you've got in your water that demand the use of chlorine levels so high that you can't do water changes without dechlorinator but I do 60 percent changes with no dechlorinator straight out of the tap here in Calgary and I've never, ever had a problem!

Sorry about your luck...

I do water changes all the time with no dechlorinator. No problems, much easier, and the plants consume the ammonia from the chloramines. I usually do 20-30% water change depending on how the plants look. If they look happy I'll do a smaller change., if they look like somethings missing I'll do a larger water change. Plants love water changes. My tank always looks so vibrant after a water change, and the fish seem so much more active.
