"It was a viscous cycle."

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. I read another review for this product saying they were using API for this purpose. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. I like API products and this is no different. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow.

"So easy to use."

I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I wanted to see if it would take the chlorine out of my swimsuit. I've using this for my betta for several years with every water change. It took a couple of days to clear but it works.

"Very good product."

It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I did water changes, but it didn't help. It just hasn't helped with the tint. It just hasn't helped with the tint. In my opinion there's nothing better. My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic.

"This pristine is amazing!"

You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. I hope I made the right decision, Betty is our family pet and is really loved! Boy, I thought I was having trouble with my filter. In my opinion there's nothing better. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water.

"But that wasn't the case!"

I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. My water is crystal clear again, and it smells like a healthy fish tank again. No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium. I love it when a product does what its supposed to. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank.

"Crystal clear in fact."

It is just as good when compared to other brands of conditioner. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. I use mine for my beta fish in a 2 gallon tank and need less than a half a cap full. One planted that has algae problem so bad. This came just in time for my water change day! I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt.

Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Pictures included to see the difference. My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing.

"Well, I have a betta."

I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Makes me want to get more aquarium's, lol. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water.

"A MUST BUY!"

I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. This came just in time for my water change day! But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. Ever since I made this purchase, my fish are not dying at all. I've always had a love for fish and had a few tanks when I was younger. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners.
