API 49A First Impressions

Very little was eaten.

This is only temporary till I get a spare dropper. He started making bubble nests again which ne never did when it was super cloudy. She seems ok with it she is behaving like herself. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. I tried it without the water change and really didn't make a difference. I like that it's a large bottle with multiple uses, so that's nice. The reviews on people fish dying really spooked me.

API 49A Final Thoughts

Best money can buy.

I've used it for years with great results. However, be aware that the dosage starts at 20 gallons. But the septic tank bacteria did nothing. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. The water we get here in SoCal is hard with chlorine in it. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it.
