"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 am so impressed!"

I've always had a love for fish and had a few tanks when I was younger. By the following morning, the water was clear of algae. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. In my opinion there's nothing better. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish.

Zoo Med 976405 Final Thoughts

"Did a tank cycle."

I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. You need to buy an eye dropper for this. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. The bottle will last me years as it is huge! From their own colon or a hole in the ground. It has been 4 days and our beta is loving the clearer water. I'll continue to use this product, especially after a good tank cleaning.

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.

Tim's cultures were obviously very alive and active. Dealing with biological cloudiness in my tank for some time. I hope it makes the swimsuit last longer.
