biOrb 46018 First Impressions

"Pet Smart knows nothing."

No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. I've always had a love for fish and had a few tanks when I was younger. This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. I'm hoping this one works out if not I'm sticking to the one I used before. No observable signs of stress in the fish. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. I do have the aforementioned uv light working on it.

biOrb 46018 Final Thoughts

"Then go for it."

My filter including polishing element could not clear it up. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! It's an All Natural Product with out of this world results. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it. By the following morning, the water was clear of algae.

2. ESV Aquatics Potassium Iodide 1% Solution for Marine Plants and Coral Reef in Salt Water Aquariums, ...

ESV Aquarium First Impressions

"Does work well!"

It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold.

ESV Aquarium Final Thoughts

More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. I love it when a product does what its supposed to. Good Product, Good Price Gets five stars! The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank.

Fluval A8366 First Impressions

"Does work well!"

I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. 1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank. I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT!

Fluval A8366 Final Thoughts

"I have guppies."

I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals. I love it when a product does what its supposed to. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Boy, I thought I was having trouble with my filter. Fish seem healthy and active during use. It is just as good when compared to other brands of conditioner. The aquasafe water conditioner is a fantastic de-chlorinator.

Fritz Aquatics 80256 Final Thoughts

"I am SO HAPPY!"

My filter including polishing element could not clear it up. This will give you how many drops is required per gallon. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium.

"Thank you!"

Easy to dispense the product without mess and easy to use per instructions. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. 1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. I wanted to see if it would take the chlorine out of my swimsuit.

Boutique Betta Final Thoughts

"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.
