"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.

She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me.

"No need to rinse."

Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. One planted that has algae problem so bad.

"Just fly around the tank."

I use mine for my beta fish in a 2 gallon tank and need less than a half a cap full. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. The live plants even looked like I just bought them. I have had aquariums for 40 years and have always used their product Cycle. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow.

"No need to rinse."

My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months.

I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I've using this for my betta for several years with every water change. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow.
