I noticed that most water conditioners also remove metals...
while this is good for non planted tanks, I am sure. Is this what we want for our plants too? Don't we want metals and minerals in our tap water to help fortify our plants?
Are there any products that just do chlorine and chloramine and not metals?
Thanks again, and just knock me upside the head if I am asking too many questions :)
I have never seen a dechlorinator that does not remove metals to some extent. I have used AquaSafe for 4 years in my planted tanks and have never seen signs of iron or any other metal deficiency.
If I find one that doesn't will let you know.
Well, if removing the metals isn't detrimental to the live plants by everyone using them anyway, then I am good with that. Thought maybe I found a kink in the armor of the current water conditioners that they don't cater to planted caretakers.
