"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.

"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!

"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.

I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. Fish seem healthy and active during use.
