"And it did."

Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. The aquasafe works instantly upon mixing with tap water. This will give you how many drops is required per gallon. My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try.

Brightwell Aquatics BAC1L Final Thoughts

"I love Seachem."

I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT! 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.

Brightwell Aquatics POE500 First Impressions

"Did a tank cycle."

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. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons.

Brightwell Aquatics POE500 Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend it."

However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. I did water changes, but it didn't help. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. I'm interested to see how long it works. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me.

"I love this stuff!"

I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper. I'm hoping this one works out if not I'm sticking to the one I used before. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia.

"If you are not using Dr."

This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. UV light works on it but not much else. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing.
