GlasGarten NONE First Impressions

"It really works."

I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning. This came just in time for my water change day! Ever since I made this purchase, my fish are not dying at all. By the following morning, the water was clear of algae. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Crystal clear after changing water and adding this to my 2.

GlasGarten NONE Final Thoughts

"About 2 months now."

Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. We use it when we clean& change out water. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. The difference is that he was going twice his normal speed.

I was sort of nervous buy this product and trying it out. This product is exactly what it says it is. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. This is the 5th since I put in the product and my tank is crystal clear. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge.

"I love Seachem."

I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. The aquasafe works instantly upon mixing with tap water. This water conditioner is a life saver! I've always had a love for fish and had a few tanks when I was younger. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. Ever since I made this purchase, my fish are not dying at all.
