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.

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

what is the difference between Tetrafauna Aquasafe and Tetra Aquasafe for fish?

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

How often should I use it? I have two medium size turtles and 2 filters that I turn off overnight

Asked by: Yayo Salvatori
Use this whenever you change water, which should be weekly. Turtles require a 50% water change each week. Filters should be on 24/7 as well. BREX

I recently got a new baby turtle and I put it in a glass bowl like container and we don’t know how much of the stuff to put in. 

Asked by: Lilly10
Well, first, the bowl is NOT an appropriate environment. Turtles require a minimum of a 20 gallon long tank, even hatchlings. They also need a UVB light, and a basking light, plenty of room to swim, and a nice piece of wood to crawl under to sleep. Minimum depth of water should be 6-12 inches. As they live around 40 years and most grow to between 6 and 12 inches, plan on purchasing a tank of 75 gallons to 150 gallons within the next 2-3 years as well. In order to determine how much water conditioner to use, you need to know how much water is in the container. Without that information, we can't suggest an amount either. 6-8 drops is sufficient for one gallon, however. BREX

is It okay if we put to much in? like double the directed amount of aqua safe? Or should we change out the water and start again 

Asked by: peryamanna25
That's fine, this product is safe to overdose, and we usually state it is better to overdose it than to under dose it. BREX
