"Well, I have a betta."

I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Makes me want to get more aquarium's, lol. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water.

"Never works."

The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. I use mine for my beta fish in a 2 gallon tank and need less than a half a cap full. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. It's an All Natural Product with out of this world results. This worked really well for my tank. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals.

"They worked."

Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you.

"I was very surprised."

Ever since I made this purchase, my fish are not dying at all. The bottle will last me years as it is huge! Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. Good Product, Good Price Gets five stars! I've used it for years with great results.

"Really good product!"

I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. It just hasn't helped with the tint. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. My water was cloudy with a very fine misty haze. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water.

"Would I buy this again."

Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. During cycling you will be using often. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing.

"It really works."

One planted that has algae problem so bad. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. I hope I made the right decision, Betty is our family pet and is really loved!
