Ive never pre-treated my tank water for chlorine/bromine. Is the issue excess ammonia from Bromine? Should I really be doing this? Ive never before and plants/fish never appeared to mind. Im assuming I would need to by yet another bottle of something or other. Seachem Prime maybe?

-Dont many of these products also remove nitrate? I dont want that.

-Some of these products convert ammonia to ammonium? Do plants use ammonium the same way?

-Some sites suggest toxic levels of ammonia at .1ppm?

-What do the shrimp think about all this?

Seachem Prime is the best product I know of, because you only dose a small amount per gallon, making the bottle last forever. It is Chloramine, not Bromine, that is the problem. Chloramine is ammonia plus chlorine.
