Worldwide Imports 029604 First Impressions

"I have six tanks."

This water conditioner is a life saver! I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. I do have the aforementioned uv light working on it. If either or both ammonia and Nitrite are above 1ppm do not add ammonia. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. You need a source of ammonia to feed the bacteria which Dr. Do not gravel vac or disturb the substrate.

Worldwide Imports 029604 Final Thoughts

"Fantastic product!"

I like API products and this is no different. Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. It just hasn't helped with the tint. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good. It's an All Natural Product with out of this world results.

I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning. I didn't purchase this for an aquarium. I read another review for this product saying they were using API for this purpose.

API 320D Final Thoughts

"No argument from me."

More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. DON'T just wait everything will be fine. I could see it working immediately which was pretty wild. This is the 5th since I put in the product and my tank is crystal clear. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted.

User Ratings: 68 5

Fluval First Impressions

"Then go for it."

No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight. During cycling you will be using often. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat!

"They eat and poop a lot."

Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. I like that it's a large bottle with multiple uses, so that's nice. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. I've used it for years with great results. 2nd day kinda noticed a slight change in water. I didn't purchase this for an aquarium. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself.

"00 ppm on both tests!"

This only applies to the 1st application. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. I finally gave in and purchased this product. I read the instructions, measured out the product, and added it to the tank. I love it when a product does what its supposed to. I've used it for years with great results.

1st day, I put product in tank with Fluval Biological Cleaner for Aquariums also. In my opinion there's nothing better. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. Its 9pm and the old cloudy water is now crystal clear! 2nd day kinda noticed a slight change in water.

Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Pictures included to see the difference.
