"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.

"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.

"This product is AMAZING!"

This is my absolute favorite conditioner I have used for all my aquatic creatures. Makes me want to get more aquarium's, lol. The equation is already done for you if you buy Dr. This only applies to the 1st application. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I didn't purchase this for an aquarium.

"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!

"Break down organics."

I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT! I've used API water conditioner before and it works well. I read the instructions, measured out the product, and added it to the tank. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.

Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! I have had aquariums for 40 years and have always used their product Cycle. Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. The aquasafe works instantly upon mixing with tap water. I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt. You need to buy an eye dropper for this.

Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. I'm interested to see how long it works. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank.

Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Pictures included to see the difference. My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS.

My filter including polishing element could not clear it up. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! I like that it's a large bottle with multiple uses, so that's nice. I hope it makes the swimsuit last longer.

"I recommend."

I love it when a product does what its supposed to. No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! By the following morning, the water was clear of algae. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters. I read another review for this product saying they were using API for this purpose.

"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.

No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. I've always had a love for fish and had a few tanks when I was younger. This is definitely worth trying if you have cloudy water. I'm hoping this one works out if not I'm sticking to the one I used before. No observable signs of stress in the fish. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. I do have the aforementioned uv light working on it.

Boutique Betta Final Thoughts

"I recommend it."

My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic. We use it when we clean& change out water. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I have been battling cloudy water in our small aquarium for two months. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully.
