MarineLand PA0373 First Impressions

"I LOVE PRISTINE!"

Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. This is my absolute favorite conditioner I have used for all my aquatic creatures. My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. We use it when we clean& change out water. I didn't purchase this for an aquarium.

MarineLand PA0373 Final Thoughts

"This product is amazing."

Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. Easy to dispense the product without mess and easy to use per instructions. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. This only applies to the 1st application. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. Crystal clear after changing water and adding this to my 2.

MarineLand First Impressions

"A MUST BUY!"

But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Pictures included to see the difference. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium.

"He was fine in no time."

Makes me want to get more aquarium's, lol. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. Boy, I thought I was having trouble with my filter. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. By the following morning, the water was clear of algae. DON'T just wait everything will be fine.

"Thank you!"

Easy to dispense the product without mess and easy to use per instructions. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. 1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. I wanted to see if it would take the chlorine out of my swimsuit.

"Pet Smart knows nothing."

You need to buy an eye dropper for this. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr.

TL Reefs First Impressions

"I LOVE PRISTINE!"

1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. I did water changes, but it didn't help. I'm hoping this one works out if not I'm sticking to the one I used before. During cycling you will be using often. Pictures included to see the difference.

TL Reefs Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend this."

It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. I've using this for my betta for several years with every water change. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. This worked really well for my tank. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. You need to buy an eye dropper for this.

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.

I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water.

"I trust them 100%."

This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. It took a couple of days to clear but it works. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners.
