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.

"Still no big changes."

I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. This is the 5th since I put in the product and my tank is crystal clear. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. This water conditioner is a life saver! I love it when a product does what its supposed to. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper.

"I trust them 100%."

The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. We use it when we clean& change out water. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. I use mine for my beta fish in a 2 gallon tank and need less than a half a cap full. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals. One planted that has algae problem so bad. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this!

I did water changes, but it didn't help. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I have two goldfish and a Corydoras catfish. He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy. I use in a freshwater aquarium and works well. I hope it makes the swimsuit last longer.

API 87E First Impressions

"I have six tanks."

I've used every product on the market and this is the most AMAZING MUST HAVE PRODUCT! Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. Use a water conditioner that does not remove ammonia. I read the reviews, and decided to give this a try. I'm amazed, I'm really amazed that this product worked so well. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. I have been using API on his suits for 3 weeks now and so far so good.

API 87E Final Thoughts

"I love this stuff!"

My filter including polishing element could not clear it up. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. I like API products and this is no different. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. We use it when we clean& change out water. Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. I even poured in extra to help with the healing.

"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!

Fluval Final Thoughts

"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.

"Then go for it."

I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. Pictures included to see the difference. My fish didn't appear negatively effected by it either. Don't know if that made a difference but it didn't hurt. Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters.
