"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.

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.

"No odor or discoloration."

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.

"I highly recommend!"

He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy. This will give you how many drops is required per gallon. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. The bottle will last me years as it is huge! This product is exactly what it says it is. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals.

The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr. I'm interested to see how long it works. I was sort of nervous buy this product and trying it out.
