    Good product and terrific customer service

    By Fishy on Dec 10, 2020

    This product works exactly as advertised for our fish, both as a water conditioner and to help damaged fish. Equally important, Chewy's customer service was great. I was initially shipped the wrong item by mistake. I used the chat feature to speak with a customer service representative who immediately shipped out the correct item and asked me to donate the incorrect item. Nobody's perfect and Chewy's handled their mistake very well.

    Perfect for my Betta

    By Mean on Mar 27, 2019

    It cleans my 5 gallon regular tap water tank and conditions it before I put my Betta fish back in the tank. I highly recommend it

    Amazing Product!

    By JCC84 on May 1, 2017

    I have 4 separate aquariums and use this as a water conditioner for all tanks. I also add to the tanks when a fish is stressed/sick and when I add new fish, plants and/or decorations. Love that it comes in a pump option and that it's cheaper on Chewy.com than anywhere else. Lifetime buyer!
