    Great product and for the price too

    By Kwan on Dec 29, 2018

    I have always used this product from different stores around. But i would never buy these larger size because the price for one would vary from 16 to 29 dollars. I don’t think so but upon coming to this site and i saw the starter kit. I was sold. This will last me a good two years. I only have 2 half moon 3 gallon tanks and a 5 gallon tank cleaning them once a month. So this will last me a long time to say the lest.
