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
Bleach is never recommended. Using 50% white vinegar mixed with 50% water is the safest for turtles.

instructions say 10ml for every 10 gal. I cut the measurements in 1/2 and used 5ml for 5 gallons of water. When I called the contact number it said it to use 1tsp per 10gal but 1tsp is equal to 5ml. turtle be okay if I got the ratio wrong&put too much?

Asked by: Casie123
I suspect the recording you received was in regards to our AquaSafe Plus for fish aquariums. But yes, the turtle will be fine. It is actually better to overdose, than underdose this particular product. And up to 2-3 times the dosage is fine. BREX

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.

Asked by: TurtleLovesFish
Thank you for your question. It is safe for all types of freshwater fish. It is a very mild formula. BREX
