    Performance

    By on

    Been using it for years, hasn't failed, however I strongly suggest you don't use another brand with it if it's not by API, chemical reaction is not good, it will produce odors and and foul up silicone plants.

    Works wonders

    By on

    I use this, along with Seachem Prime. I originally purchased it to help speed along the healing process of my Betta’s tail. He ripped almost his entire top fin off after cutting it on an ornament. This product, coupled with consistent water changes, has helped him heal quickly and beautifully.
