"I love Seachem."

I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. Very good product for an unbelievable price. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. Makes me want to get more aquarium's, lol.

GloFish AQ-78302 Final Thoughts

"Then I added pristine."

He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. 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. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. In my opinion there's nothing better.

"Just measure and pour."

I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. Easy to dispense the product without mess and easy to use per instructions.

"00 product."

It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank.
