Hi All

A question where can I buy Chlorine in the Coinbra area.

I need it to clean stones for my fish tank.

Thanks

Peter

Any shop selling swimming pool supplies with have the powder that makes chlorine (which is a green poisonous gas that was used to kill the opposition in WW1). My local butcher also stocks the powder which has the chemical name calcium hypochlorite. It is much cheaper from him.

However be careful to rinse the stones and remove all traces of chlorine before you add them to the tank as it will probably kill the fish, snails etc.

Fish pools/tanks should not be completely disinfected as they need some bacteria and algae etc. for plants and other organisms to grow.

Ordinary household bleach (LixĂ­via) is based on sodium hypochlorite and will perform this task, though you probably want to avoid perfumed versions.
