Yes.
Our tap water consists of chlorine and chloromine. Those few dollars a bottle type don't buy.
Seachem prime (solution) or seachem safe (powder) are the most common brands.
Of course there's Baxter, wizz, API stresscoat and/or AquaScience, etc...
I'm personally using AquaScience (powder in 10kg carton). More economical because I've alot of fishes...
Cheap de chlorination solution dont remove chloramine. Chloramine can still kill your fish and plants etc.

Make sure bottle say treat both chlorine and chloramine.

Buy the powder form which works the exact same way but much cheaper.

Or age your water for 4 days to a week before using. I use age water mostly. Only during emergency then i use de chlorination solution.

so if those cheap ones states it removes chlorine and chloramine means can buy?

I think it's safer to use those I've mentioned above.
I don't want my fishes to die. Waste money and animal cruelty...
Get the powder type. More economical. One small bottle can last a very long time.

What is the fastest way to setup an immediate quarantine small fish tank? Assuming not maintaining by running it on standby mode. Start from scratch. Thanks

btw aging doesn’t remove chloramine either. That’s why the water companies use chloramine. It is very stable and doesn’t offgas easily.

I seriously have no idea because I'm using non retail version (bulk).
If it doesn't comes with a scoop(I think it does), just use those cough syrup two way plastic spoon. Slight overdose is fine.

Use an existing sponge filter from main tank and put into quarantine tank.

Take some bio media from main tank filter and put into quarantine tank.

Take some rocks/wood/gravel or sand substrate from main tank and put into quarantine tank.

Quarantine duration at least 3 to 4 weeks. Use separate nets etc so as not to transfer anything from quarantine tank to main tank.

Nice thread! Has anybody seen any sailfin mollies around? Have only seen the orange and white ones in lfs, but haven't seen them around for a long time. Simply love it when they flare their dorsal fins at each other.
Seaview used to carry a lot of white sailfin mollies.You can check it out when they reopen in a few months.

any difference between those cheap generic de-chlorination solution versus those expensive or those made for specific type of fish?
I use Ocean Free New Water Guard for the last 12 years.Never went wrong with it.

2 liters can last me for 10 months.
