Yes and No
Benefit - anytime medications are used in the aquarium, daily water changes, increased aeration (oxygenation of water) is recommended as almost all medication active ingredients will sequester oxygen
Con - depending upon what is actually leased by the membrane (lots of conjecture but I don’t believe any refereed scientific study), there may be increased oxidative reactions with medication active ingredients ie medication may have reduced efficacy
I don’t see how the reactor membrane could be negatively affected
(limescale deposits etc would be more likely)
Thanks i was thinking it would be good to have it in there for the extra o2, but assumed it could interfere with the meds in some way seeing as we don't know a major amount about the product/technology.
I was thinking more along the lines of staining the reactor rather than damage. Calcium is definitely it's enemy
Thanks guys, i was pretty much thinking the same thing. I don't think i'll add an air stone because it's an open top tank and the bubbles/splashing would be annoying and could splash the wall behind or the lighting unit above from previous experience.
I'm doing rounds of preventative meds, mainly for internal parasites/worms for my new gouramis and rams.
