"They eat and poop a lot."

She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. This worked really well for my tank. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself.

Loving Pets F50 Final Thoughts

"Then go for it."

I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. Pictures included to see the difference. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters.

"I have a small 2."

I like API products and this is no different. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. My water is crystal clear again, and it smells like a healthy fish tank again. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I love it when a product does what its supposed to.

"Highly recommended."

Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. I hope it makes the swimsuit last longer. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow.

"I couldn't believe it."

Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! Fish seem healthy and active during use. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters.

"New tank syndrome."

I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. I've using this for my betta for several years with every water change. Very good product for an unbelievable price. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper.

Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me.

"I love Seachem."

I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT! 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.

"This product is AMAZING!"

It is just as good when compared to other brands of conditioner. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. During cycling you will be using often. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. Pictures included to see the difference. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild.

Good Product, Good Price Gets five stars! You need to buy an eye dropper for this. In my opinion there's nothing better. Fish seem healthy and active during use.

"Mostly for betta's."

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. This worked really well for my tank.
