You can got it from Chandrawal, Malka Ganj. There are lots of shops who sold Laboratory grade chemicals.


It is available in tablet form,but in my 200 litres tank you can give an idea of how many tablets.
Can be ordered online?or anywhere in south Delhi.
Does it have Glutaraldehyde?
Lastly I dont want my fishes to die.So he number of tablets pls specify.

Any dead fish can flow down the river but it takes a live one to swim back up stream.

Somen, Glutureldehyde is available in Liquid form. I have heard from only you about the tablet form of Glut.

They are not feasible for long time run and also not suitable in bigger tanks. So it is best to go for pressurised CO2 Cylinder or Gluteraldehyde.

I have got 500ML of Glut (25%). My tank size is 30X15X18. I have following queries -

1. What would be the daily dosse of glut?
2. DO I need to dilute it in water or could be injected directly in the tank?
3. Is there any shelf life for Glut, I mean expiry?
4. Does it need to be protected from light?

Dimensions of your tank 30X15X18 are in inch or cm?
