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.

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge.

Aqueon 6020 Final Thoughts

"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.

4. Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml

User Ratings: 87 2

Seachem First Impressions

"Wow my tank is so clear."

You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. This product is exactly what it says it is. 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. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants.

  • Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml
  • TANK STABILIZATION: Seachem Stability will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome".
  • TREATMENT: Stability is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
  • BACTERIA GROWTH: The necessary conditions for the growth of Stability's bacteria strains encompass a very broad range. When other bacteria begin to die off (usually from high organic loads caused by the unknown death of an organism), Stability simply becomes more effective.
  • USE: Shake Seachem Stability well before use and turn off UV/ozone filter. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 1 capful for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days. Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days.
  • SAFE: The bacteria employed by Stability are non-sulfur fixing and will not produce toxic hydrogen sulfide. Stability is completely harmless to all aquatic organisms as well as aquatic plants, thus there is no danger of overuse.

Seachem Final Thoughts

"Never works."

One planted that has algae problem so bad. 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 love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. My filter including polishing element could not clear it up.

"00 ppm on both tests!"

This only applies to the 1st application. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. I finally gave in and purchased this product. I read the instructions, measured out the product, and added it to the tank. I love it when a product does what its supposed to. I've used it for years with great results. UV light works on it but not much else.

Aquarium Water Clarifier Final Thoughts

"Highly recommended."

1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. In my opinion there's nothing better. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! 2nd day kinda noticed a slight change in water.

I did water changes, but it didn't help. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy. I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. I hope it makes the swimsuit last longer.

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals.

API Final Thoughts

"This product is AMAZING!"

It is just as good when compared to other brands of conditioner. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. During cycling you will be using often. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. Pictures included to see the difference. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild.

"I couldn't believe it."

Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat!

I like API products and this is no different. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. It took a couple of days to clear but it works. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I hope I made the right decision, Betty is our family pet and is really loved!
