"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.

"New tank syndrome."

I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. It's a must for anyone who loves Goldfish. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. The top is a measuring tool as well which I was not expecting. I've used it for years with great results. Way to go Fluval keep up the good WORK!

Zoo Med Final Thoughts

"Would I buy this again."

Fish would die occassionally every few weeks or so. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. During cycling you will be using often. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I recieved it today at 3pm and applied it around 4pm. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing.

"Well, I have a betta."

My tap water is very heavy and this water conditioner does it's magic. I have a great pump and uv light but still had cloudy-ish water. My filter including polishing element could not clear it up. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters. I have a 5 gallon tank, so that number was waaaay too high for me. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons.

"I highly recommend it."

Dunkin, my Betta doesn't seem to stress out over my adding this. I have used this consistently since cycling my small sized fresh-water tank. Do not clean the filters, do not change the filters. I've had my fishy for 5 years now and I would say it's ALL because of Fluval. The aquasafe water conditioner is a fantastic de-chlorinator. It's an All Natural Product with out of this world results. I have a Fluval tank and only use their chemicals.

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.

"Highly recommended."

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.

"Thank you!"

Easy to dispense the product without mess and easy to use per instructions. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself.

You need to buy an eye dropper for this. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. I have two 36 gallon tanks right now. I decided to pick it up once again and struggled mightily my first few months. I know you are going to want to add more chemicals, etc. No exaggeration-- literally cleared overnight.
