"I was getting 30-40 ppm."

Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! During cycling you will be using often. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT! In my opinion there's nothing better.

Python 64WC Final Thoughts

"Then go for it."

In my opinion there's nothing better. 2nd day kinda noticed a slight change in water. I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. 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 read the instructions, measured out the product, and added it to the tank.

"I LOVE PRISTINE!"

Ever since I made this purchase, my fish are not dying at all. My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier.

Very good product for an unbelievable price. I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning.

Fritz Aquatics 97016 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Keep testing the ammonia."

She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me.

"No need to rinse."

Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. One planted that has algae problem so bad.

Kordon MODEL-31256 First Impressions

"Very little was eaten."

You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I read the instructions, measured out the product, and added it to the tank. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. It gets rid of the chlorine in tap water. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this.

"If you are not using Dr."

4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Boy, I thought I was having trouble with my filter. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr.

5. API Betta

User Ratings: 70 5

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.

"Wow my tank is so clear."

The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. I hope it makes the swimsuit last longer. This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water.

I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. I hope I made the right decision, Betty is our family pet and is really loved! From their own colon or a hole in the ground.

"It's CLEAR!"

My water was cloudy with a very fine misty haze. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters. This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. Fish seem healthy and active during use. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia. Pictures included to see the difference.

The bottle will last me years as it is huge! I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. We use it when we clean& change out water. The aquasafe water conditioner is a fantastic de-chlorinator.

"Good luck, Dr."

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. I'm interested to see how long it works. In my opinion there's nothing better. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals.
