The Filter Guys-
I saw that there is a chloramine filter that is additional. Is this necessary? If I don't use it, then do I have to "age" the water before putting in my tank?. I wish to buy the Ocean Wave + and I need to know if I should get the chloramine filter. I have municipal (non-well) water. Thanks.

"Aging" water is usually reserved only for chlorine in tap water because it will effuse away. Chloramine is not a gas however and is not volatile, so it won't help. I asked them a while back and they said i could get away with just using two carbon blocks in the prefilters and that this would be enough. So i THINK (not 100% certain) that the chloramine filter is not essential as long as you use two appropriate carbon blocks.

Sorry for being slow in getting back to you been on the road all day today. The difference in filters does make a difference in filtering. Chloramines take long carbon contact time with high capacity and quality filters. They exhausted more quickly then with chlorine.
