"I highly recommend it."

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. This is my absolute favorite conditioner I have used for all my aquatic creatures. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. 1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. I hope I made the right decision, Betty is our family pet and is really loved!

"Look up Dr."

I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I was sort of nervous buy this product and trying it out. Fish seem healthy and active during use. It took a couple of days to clear but it works. I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it.

"It will last a long time!"

I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. I was sort of nervous buy this product and trying it out. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. Very good product for an unbelievable price. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it.

"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. No observable signs of stress in the fish. Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. I'm interested to see how long it works.
