"He was fine in no time."

More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it. This only applies to the 1st application. This water conditioner is a life saver! It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

Tetra Pond 77189 Final Thoughts

"My fish kept dying."

During cycling you will be using often. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. I did water changes, but it didn't help. Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Very good product for an unbelievable price.

My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank.

"I highly recommend this."

UV light works on it but not much else. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals. I did water changes, but it didn't help. You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. If you have new tank syndrome then this is the stuff. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it.

"A clean needle works too."

It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. My water was cloudy with a very fine misty haze. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. This product is exactly what it says it is. I'm sold on this, I've tried SO MANY and wow. This worked really well for my tank. I hope I made the right decision, Betty is our family pet and is really loved!

"Would I buy this again."

Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. During cycling you will be using often. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing.

"My fish kept dying."

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild.

"They eat and poop a lot."

I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active.

"Very little was eaten."

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. The live plants even looked like I just bought them. I finally gave in and purchased this product. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! In my opinion there's nothing better. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. This product is exactly what it says it is.

DON'T just wait everything will be fine. I'm interested to see how long it works. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. I'm interested to see how long it works. He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy.

"I have a small 2."

I like API products and this is no different. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. My water is crystal clear again, and it smells like a healthy fish tank again. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I love it when a product does what its supposed to.
