What water conditioner can I use to get rid of chlorine without it getting rid of my TE and macros? I have stresscoat but that removes heavy metals.

When they say "removes heavy metals" they don't affect the macros, or micros. I think they only remove toxic metals such as copper, etc. But Seachem Prime seems to the best bang for your buck, a 500ml treats 5000gallons.

This topic was brought up by me several weeks ago, but in regard to Tetra's AquaSafe. It, too, says that it removes heavy metals. But most users of the product have never had any ill effects on their ferts, whether micros or macros. I would imagine that stresscoat is the exact same thing, or very similar at least, to AquaSafe. When I called up Tetra about the absorbtion or removal of my ferts, they agreed that you should wait 24 to 26 hous before ading your aquasafe treated water to your tank.
Do a search on this forum for Aqausafe and you will find my thread. I realize that I am not directly answering your question, but I hope that by reading the other thread you will see that your product will probably not remove all that much, if any, of your ferts.
