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.

"It's CLEAR!"

The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr. This worked really well for my tank. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. Very good product for an unbelievable price. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so.

WuyouChy Final Thoughts

"Shake well before use."

Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. This came just in time for my water change day! My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect.

5. Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml

User Ratings: 87 2

Seachem First Impressions

"Wow my tank is so clear."

You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. This product is exactly what it says it is. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. I use mine for my beta fish in a 2 gallon tank and need less than a half a cap full. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants.

  • Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml
  • TANK STABILIZATION: Seachem Stability will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome".
  • TREATMENT: Stability is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
  • BACTERIA GROWTH: The necessary conditions for the growth of Stability's bacteria strains encompass a very broad range. When other bacteria begin to die off (usually from high organic loads caused by the unknown death of an organism), Stability simply becomes more effective.
  • USE: Shake Seachem Stability well before use and turn off UV/ozone filter. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 1 capful for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days. Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days.
  • SAFE: The bacteria employed by Stability are non-sulfur fixing and will not produce toxic hydrogen sulfide. Stability is completely harmless to all aquatic organisms as well as aquatic plants, thus there is no danger of overuse.

Seachem Final Thoughts

"Never works."

One planted that has algae problem so bad. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. My filter including polishing element could not clear it up.
