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 trust them 100%."

I intend to use this for every aquarium or pond I start. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. I like that it's a large bottle with multiple uses, so that's nice. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm.

"New tank syndrome."

Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. I wanted to see if it would take the chlorine out of my swimsuit. One planted that has algae problem so bad.

"Great deal!"

Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. This will give you how many drops is required per gallon. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. If you have new tank syndrome then this is the stuff.

"This stuff really works."

More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. The aquasafe works instantly upon mixing with tap water. I finally gave in and purchased this product. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc.
