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.

"Tims bacteria."

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. It took a couple of days to clear but it works. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. Easy to dispense the product without mess and easy to use per instructions. I didn't purchase this for an aquarium. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product.

Fountainhead Water Systems Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend this."

By the following morning, the water was clear of algae. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. It took a couple of days to clear but it works. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia.

"Really good product!"

I was sort of nervous buy this product and trying it out. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water.

"Very little was eaten."

You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper.

"It was a viscous cycle."

You need to buy an eye dropper for this. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. I like that it's a large bottle with multiple uses, so that's nice. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat!
