I know you are going to worry about your fish DON'T they are fine. I like that it's a large bottle with multiple uses, so that's nice. We use it when we clean& change out water.

Natural Rapport Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend it."

I've using this for my betta for several years with every water change. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. One planted that has algae problem so bad. Ever since I made this purchase, my fish are not dying at all. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. The aquasafe water conditioner is a fantastic de-chlorinator. Pictures included to see the difference.

"This pristine is amazing!"

You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. The bottle will last me years as it is huge!

3. API Betta

API First Impressions

"It was bad."

In my opinion there's nothing better. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons.

API Final Thoughts

"They eat and poop a lot."

I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. My filter including polishing element could not clear it up. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. My water was cloudy with a very fine misty haze. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins.

Brightwell Aquatics POE500 First Impressions

"Did a tank cycle."

I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons.

Brightwell Aquatics POE500 Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend it."

However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. I did water changes, but it didn't help. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. I'm interested to see how long it works. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me.

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing.
