Flume Tank

Post by aaprea » Sun May 31, 2015 10:50 pm

Hello MATE,

How is the sanitation handled within the flume tank? Is the water chlorinated, salt, or bromine?

Thank you,

I have inquired with the Marine Institute and will post an answer when I get it.

Water in the flume tank is very lightly chlorinated, usually less than 1 ppm. A liquid algaecide is sometimes (rarely) used as well.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
