Bulk Reef Supply demonstrates that toxic Chloramine IS getting through most water filters

Chloramine is a well-documented toxin to all manner of aquatic life, freshwater and marine, and aquarists have long believed that basic reverse osmosis is good enough to eliminate Chloramine from our water supply.

We get so many tips telling us about this-or-that crowdsourced aquarium project, and most of them do not make the cut of being post-worthy but this one from Norrom squeaks by for having a very heavy emphasis on design.

Their martian like faces with huge bulging eyes and pursed lips coupled with their undulating fin movements make for a highly peculiar animal.
