    Is the fluid used in these at all toxic to fish if it gets knocked off the side of the tank from time to time, which is almost certain in a tank full of rambunctious mbuna?

    Deprotonated? Protonated? Something Is Wrong With That Evil Plant Monster...


    Hi Jim,

    No, the fluid in the drop checker is simply 4-dKH water and some and a very small amount of Bromothymol blue.:)


    Bromothymol blue acts as a weak acid when deprotonated it is blue, appearing yellow when protonated.:rolleyes:
