What precautions should fish owners take?

Chloramines should be removed from water that is used in fish tanks, ponds, and aquariums. Tropical fish shops and other businesses that keep fish or other animals in aquariums or ponds are encouraged to contact a pet supply company about how to remove chloramines before using drinking water in an aquarium.

Similarly, customers who use drinking water for aquaculture (growing plants in a water tank or pond) are encouraged to get expert advice regarding whether and how to neutralize or remove chloramines. Also, restaurants and grocery stores with lobster tanks must take special precautions to treat the water.
