Though safe for drinking by humans, monochloramine, like chlorine, is toxic to fish and other aquatic organisms at levels used for drinking water. Fish hobbyists or home aquarium owners must neutralize or remove monochloramine from water used in aquariums or ponds.
As with chlorine, fish (including fresh and salt water fish), amphibians, and reptiles are harmed by monochloramine as it passes through the gills, directly entering their bloodstream.
Products are available at fish and pet supply stores to remove monochloramine from aquarium water including: treatment products (drops or tablets) that remove both ammonia and chlorine, or iological filters (for ammonia) and chemical agents (for chlorine).
Aquarium owners should routinely test their water for ammonia and chlorine concentrations. Test kits are available at pet shops and aquarium products suppliers.

Water hardness is measured as Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) in mg/l on a scale, as represented by the one below. Lower CaCO3 levels in water samples are considered soft, and water samples containing 251 mg/l of CaCO3 are too hard for domestic water use.
Our latest Consumer Confidence Report indicates that our water has 110 mg/l of CaCO3. This would qualify as being moderately hard water.
