EcoBio-Block EBS-M Final Thoughts

"Never works."

I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. I'm interested to see how long it works. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. This worked really well for my tank. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia.

"It was a viscous cycle."

I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. It is just as good when compared to other brands of conditioner. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! It just hasn't helped with the tint.

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!

"It will last a long time!"

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. One planted that has algae problem so bad. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. By the following morning, the water was clear of algae.

It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. This is my absolute favorite conditioner I have used for all my aquatic creatures. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper.

"Tims bacteria."

This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. I love it when a product does what its supposed to.

  • Seachem Stability
  • 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 bacterial 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 the 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.

More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! In my opinion there's nothing better. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. I intend to use this for every aquarium or pond I start. My water was cloudy with a very fine misty haze. One planted that has algae problem so bad.
