1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. Very good product for an unbelievable price. Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect.

My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate.
