Stress coat is based on the cap. A whole cap treats 10 gallons...It's not a liquid it's more of a goo.

I think they cap is probably more than 1 teaspoon. I'd say look at the cap next to a teaspoon measuring spoon and see. If it is more, I'd switch to Jungle Start right. You can get a large bottle (I THINK it's 8oz) at Walmart for $6.

I'm not sure if an RO system removes Chlorine as well (I'm off to search that) but maybe that's what they have? I dunno. :/ I'd be skeptical and I'd probably e-mail them asking for more details before I bought anything from them. They do have some amazing bettas though and I love the fact that they're bred here in the US!

Still I think before I go to Aquabid I'll PM the breeders on here for pictures of their stock instead. After all; I know you guys pretty well. I can trust that you treat your fish well. =] Plus it just makes more sense. I can contact you all directly and I don't have to deal with auctions and all of that stuff. It's so much simpler! XD

Ok so I just did some quick research on RO water and RO/DI water. Apparently it's used in reef aquariums because it removes chlorine, chloramines, and heavy metals with the carbon pre-filter, and then the RO membrane (RO stands for Reverse Osmosis btw. :P). The the DI (de-ionizing) takes care of the dangerous ionized water.

I got this info from an FAQ made by an RO filter and installation company that showed up on the Google search and a Wikipedia article. So you can take it or leave it. :P

I think it's worth e-mailing them about but I don't feel the need to get an Aquabid account just to ask them if they have an RO/DI system! XD If someone on here has an Aquabid account and feels like asking then posting back with the answer it'd be pretty cool though. =]

My water is very safe, and I do not use it any conditioner for any of my fish. I haven't had any deaths (other than euthanasia) since April, and I have 14 happy, healthy, beautiful fish. The circumstance is unknown to us, so we can't really yell or get angry. Odds are his water is safe since his fish are 1) alive, and 2) not bad looking.
+1.

If they weren't doing "something" to remove the chlorine the fishes would definitely die

Um, yes it does.

From my bottle "It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels."

Otherwise yes, he must do something to his water to make it safe. Although I don't see how advertising that is a selling point.

Oh. I saw it online and I saw nothing in the description that said it removed heavy metals (it also didn't say it on the bottle in the picture). Thanks for telling me! I want to try it now.

Personally I think this seller has some of the worst fish out there...from a breeding standpoint...he dosen't even know his colors/patterns.
