"They eat and poop a lot."

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 fish kept dying."

The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! The aquasafe water conditioner is a fantastic de-chlorinator. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow. I read another review for this product saying they were using API for this purpose. The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully.

"No argument from me."

You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. This product is exactly what it says it is. This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. Crystal clear after changing water and adding this to my 2. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. It just hasn't helped with the tint. I have had aquariums for 40 years and have always used their product Cycle.

"Great deal!"

Good Product, Good Price Gets five stars! You need to buy an eye dropper for this. In my opinion there's nothing better. Fish seem healthy and active during use. I use mine for my beta fish in a 2 gallon tank and need less than a half a cap full. The difference is that he was going twice his normal speed. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper.

"Mostly for betta's."

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. This worked really well for my tank.

If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia.

I did water changes, but it didn't help. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS.

Boy, I thought I was having trouble with my filter.

"I recommend it."

My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic. We use it when we clean& change out water. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully.

"Then go for it."

By the following morning, the water was clear of algae. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it. I'm interested to see how long it works. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I've using this for my betta for several years with every water change.
