Bleach for Söchting oxidizer, questions??

Recommended Posts

Heavyd

I just ordered two oxidisers from Dean. Is there any reason why I cant use the 6% Bleach that you can buy from a chemist. Works out a lot cheaper than the 35% food grade stuff. Also, I believe there is an option for bleach from hydroponics stores that I've just started looking up. Reasons/suggestions??

Well I've been trawling the web looking for a cheaper alternative, and came across this place:

http://barringtonriverorganicfarm.com.au/products.html

I contacted them and placed an order. They are almost half the price of the other place recommended and shipping is $11 next day. I'll tell you how it goes with the delivery.

no you can not use anything else as a substitute! this is the one thing the manufacturer has made very clear.

the stabilizers and binding agents in all other products are not allowed.

i have now changed all the links on my site to the link you found for us.

great find mate.

      I live in Hong Kong, there are a few shop in hong kong where you can catch your own shrimp, and this it one of them, this is also one of the cheapest shop. in Hong Kong you can buy almost any shrimps I friend told me about this shop, but this if the first time their.   I'm still deciding what plant to use , my be Fissidens fontanus, those Madagascar lace in the tank are just the leaves, I cut them from the old tank, they have overgrown the tank. but they have good biofilm and bacteria.

      More great photos, good to see the shadow panda, hope they are all doing well? You get such fantastic colour ones where you are! I did my reset tank today and removed lots of plants so it looks a little sparse. Anyway, I will check the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate tomorrow. TDS is 125 so spot on what I predicted using my spreadsheet. There were a lot of unhealthy plants! If the nitrates have dropped I may get a couple of new plants, and maybe even some shrimps next week??? Fingers crossed............. Simon
