    Great addition to tank maintenance

    By on

    I have several fish tanks that I take care of at my workplace and this has been a great addition to regular tank maintenance. If the tank is looking a little dirty, I just put some of this in there and it clears up the sludge.

    A must have

    By on

    This is an absolute must have for weekly water changes. Using stress zyme with stress coat when changing water is an absolute must!! It keeps my aquariums clean,dramatically reduces sludge in the substrate,and just makes for a healthy environment for fish. One cap full per 20 gallons of water or a half of cap full for 10 gallons makes measuring a breeze... Api is the only way to go when buying freshwater conditioners!! And chewy makes it affordable and easy to get with fast free shipping! Thank you chewy

    fish love it

    You can never put enough of this in. I wish they would specify the difference between this one and the marine zyme. They both say saltwater. I’m going to be trying the other next time.

    Re-balance

    By on

    I’d become resigned and fatalistic about the conditions of my tank. Told myself my neon tetras had neon tetra disease – therefore incurable. One big, oblivious bottom feeder and three fungus laden tetras, struggling and stressed. It even took me awhile to realize the algae bloom making the water opaque green was a sign something needed to change. Saw this product and because I’m simultaneously trying to improve the bacteria in my gut decided to give it a try. It has been five or six weeks and all is as it should be, clear water, healthy, alert fish, without the immense effort fish store personnel would’ve probably told me to engage in. And I write this kind of review rarely.

    API products are the best!

    By on

    I still tend to over-feed even though I know better. I can't stand the thought of any of my fish being hungry. This stuff works great at eating away excess food at the bottom of the tank. Very often, I hear people talk about using this instead of regular water conditioner. Please keep in mind, this product does not make tap water safe. It does not remove chlorine and chloramines and it does not detoxify heavy metals. API's Stress Coat is still required.
