"I was getting 30-40 ppm."

It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. Use a heater and crank it to 82 degrees again without fish in the tank. This is the 5th since I put in the product and my tank is crystal clear. 1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good.

"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.

"Great deal!"

I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT! Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters.

"Recieved it in 2 days."

Crystal clear after changing water and adding this to my 2. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium. This will give you how many drops is required per gallon. Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK! We use it when we clean& change out water. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium.

Tetra 16172 First Impressions

"I love this product."

If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. 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 tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. It's water change day so I did this step first then started cleaning the tank.

Tetra 16172 Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend this."

I did water changes, but it didn't help. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. In my opinion there's nothing better. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. I have had aquariums for 40 years and have always used their product Cycle. Boy, I thought I was having trouble with my filter.

"I have guppies."

Just an idea incase someone doesn't have a spare dropper. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. During cycling you will be using often. I have had aquariums for 40 years and have always used their product Cycle. No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted.

"It really works."

The afternoon I received this product I added half a dose to each aquarium. It is just as good when compared to other brands of conditioner. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. I read another review for this product saying they were using API for this purpose. This product is exactly what it says it is. This is the 5th since I put in the product and my tank is crystal clear.

"Awesome product!"

It just hasn't helped with the tint. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! My water is crystal clear like the first day i filled it and i could be happier. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants.

"It was a viscous cycle."

I was sort of nervous buy this product and trying it out. I have had aquariums for 40 years and have always used their product Cycle. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. You have to understand when to use this product, and what is is used for. I read another review for this product saying they were using API for this purpose. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it.

"It was a viscous cycle."

API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. The live plants even looked like I just bought them. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate. I finally gave in and purchased this product. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild. My water was cloudy with a very fine misty haze. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect.

"I LOVE PRISTINE!"

This only applies to the 1st application. I've always had a love for fish and had a few tanks when I was younger. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. Pictures included to see the difference. He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy.
