Conditioning my water?
I've just started a new aquarium. Do I NEED to be using a product to dechlorinate the water? I prefer to use as few chemicals in the household as possible. The fish have been in for about 5 days now. If I do need to use it, what do you suggest? Thanks.

The chlorine in the water will burn the fish. thats why its good to use a dechlorinator.

Check with your water company whether or not they add chlorine or chloramines. If they do you should use chemicals. If its only chlorine you can use a cheap product, if its chloramines you will need one that neutralizes ammonia
