So I'm new to this, please help!
So I know there's all kinds of chemicals you need to add to the fish tank in order for the fish to stay healthy. Is it ok that I put all these chemicals all at the same time or will it hurt the fish? And I'm not sure how often I should put these chemicals in????? Chemicals such as, water clear, aquasafe, ammo lock, stress enzyme, stress coat, nitraban. Please help! Thanks.
Im no expert but im pretty sure you don't need to add all thoose in at the same time. The main chamicals you need are water condishiner and maby that protien stuff. I think you add in the nitraban if u see high nitrate lvls. It also depends if your doing saltwater or freshwater.
P.s welcome to Fish Forum.
Unless your water is real poor all you need to add is water conditioner, the are rest just things you don't need unless absouletly vital to do so. Get yourself a box and put them away untill you really need them.
The answer to that is NO. The only thing you need to be adding is water conditioner and with that make sure you dont add to much when you are doing water changes because too much can kill the fish. The stress-relieving chemical and the chemical for coating your fish will usually all come in the water conditioner. You dont need any of that other stuff. If you have cycled your tank correctly then there should be no need for anything. The water should have good stats naturally not by adding chemicals. Also, having too many chemicals in the tank is harmful to the fish. So I would just stick with adding water conditioner. What are your water parameters ? ( Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate ). Also have you cycled your tank yet? Is it even going yet?

thank you all for the answers!!!! I was releived to hear that I didn't need all that!! :D My tank has fully cycled, I just wasn't sure if I was to add all those things to maintain stability in the tank. Thank you!
no, all you should need to maintain a healthy tank is a master test kit, water conditioner(to use when you do weekly, or bi-monthy water changes), and regular water changes. most of the problems can be avoided with regular tank maintenance. good luck!
