Does this help in any way to prevent algie 

Asked by: Ossie
No. The prevention for algae is to maintain the tank regularly, not overstock and not over feed. If this is a turtle tank, for example, they require a 25-50 percent water change every week. They also require 10 gallons of water for every inch of shell diameter. If you follow these guidelines, you typically do not have algae issues. BREX

I want an African dwarf frog and Betta in the same tank- could I use a Betta conditioner and this conditioner in the same tank or not?

Asked by: emcooper
You would not need both, just one or the other as they do the same thing, remove chlorine, chloramines, etc. BREX

How much aqua safe for 2 cups of water for a small turtle habitat?

Asked by: Cuppfamily
First of all, the minimum recommended size for a turtle habitat is 10 gallons of water for one inch of turtle. It is also recommend to do a 25% water change once a week so you would be treating a minimum of 2.5 gallons of water each week. Even a hatchling turtle, the size of a quarter, should be in at least 10 gallons of water in order to have enough swimming room. Use 10 drops per gallon. We cannot reduce it down to cups, so we recommend you mix up a gallon at a time. BREX

Could you please indicate what about distilled water is bad for tadpoles? I hadn't heard from you yet, and just used several gallons.This is the 4th (and largest) batch I have raised by default. 1st batch I released 76 froglets out of 80 tads w/distilled.

Asked by: ksb927
Distilled or reverse osmosis water does not have the minerals necessary to buffer pH. If used exclusively you will have a very unstable pH which is dangerous for aquatic animals. The pH is typically 5.0 which is very acidic. RO water is used in marine tanks, but that is because the hobbyist adds a salt mix which puts the minerals and trace elements back into the water for the animals. They also do extensive testing and supplementation as necessary. BREX

Is this the best product for tadpoles? They are in a kiddie pool until time to escape to the 'real world'. I have been using distilled water for the change-outs. But, they are incredibly dirty creatures, and the cost is putting me in the poor house.

Asked by: ksb927
Distilled water really isn't good for them either. Yes, this product is perfectly safe for frogs, tadpoles, newts, etc. BREX

How many drops of Tetrafauna AquaSafe can I use per gallon? I would like to know how many drops I can use. If regular AquaSafe for fish needs 8 drops per gallon, since this appears to be half strength, does it need 16 drops per gallon. 

Asked by: Rina
It is a different formula from the standard AquaSafe. We recommend 10-16 drops. The lower amount if you have less than 2.5 mg/L chlorine/chlorinamines in your tap water, the higher amount if it is higher than that. BREX

The formulas are not the same. The TetraFauna one is milder, and does not contain a slime coat additive. BREX
