Twice a year I use a little bleach to clean my turtles tank. I rinse and drain several times (including a separate thorough rinse of filter, heater, and substrate rocks). Will this product neutralize bleach (sodium hypochlorite) if any remains ?

Asked by: MitchellG
Yes, it removes chlorine. Why do you use bleach? Ideally, turtle tanks should be bare bottom (no gravel, only large rocks for a cave), and receive a weekly vacuum and water change of 50%. They should never need stripping, and bleach is never recommended. If a complete cleaning is needed, we recommend hot water mixed with distilled white vinegar as this will not damage any plastics or glass or harm the animals housed in the tank, but will clean extremely well.

I've looked up this product on Amazon and the prices are all different. There's one by Tetra for $3.44 and one for $41.40. They both say "Tetra 77009 AquaSafe for Reptiles, 100-ml." Could you send me a link for the right one? Thank you!

Asked by: StarMagz
Sure, the link is below. When shopping on Amazon, the safest one to choose is the one sold and shipped by Amazon. These are typically the authentic product being sold by the manufacturer. https://www.amazon.com/Tetra-77009-AquaSafe-Reptiles-100-ml/dp/B003JVR1OA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1485785744&sr=8-1&keywords=tetra+aquasafe+for+reptiles BREX

So I see that it works for ornamental fish, will it be safe if I put some in a 55 gallon tank with barb fish and goldfish count. I don't want to hurt my fishes.

Is it common for turtle aquarium to foam up?  The water is getting a foam (bubbles) around edges.  Is this common?

Asked by: LA Matt
Yes, as this is excess protein in the water, and turtles make a lot of waste, which is the cause of the protein. It is an indicator that you need a larger filter and weekly water changes. Typically, you should change around 50% of the water once a week. BREX

Can this be put inside the tank while the turtles are in it? Or do I have to remove them first? 

Asked by: Nicky
You may add this to the water with the turtles in the tank yes, although ideally, new water should have this added to it prior to pouring it into the tank. BREX
