Questions & Answers

9 Customer Questions

I just ordered some of this and put it in my tank and it was like a yellow gel with little spots in it. Some of it even settled in the bottom of my tank. Is that normal?
Answer by ChewyDec 29, 2018
This product's consistency is a thick yellow gel. This product must be shaken well before using to break down the clumps.

Do I need test strips? or can I just use this and be ok w/o too much science? My son is young but wants to do this all by himself
Answer by ChewyJun 14, 2019
Test strips are not required for use with this conditioner.

How many gallons does one bottle treat?
Answer by ChewyDec 06, 2018
The entire bottle treats approximately 500 gallons.

Nitrate control is a big issue for me! Will this help with the nitrates that are coming out of my tap at 20ppm?
Answer by ChewyDec 06, 2018
This water conditioner will help reduce nitrates and phosphates, which also means less frequent water changes.

Good value

This is a value size bottle. I have never seen one this large in the store. I use it every time I change the water in my aquarium and in between changes, when I add water. The cost is much better per ounce than the smaller bottles.

Like the results

As others have pointed out-THIS IS NOT A WATER CONDITIONER. It does not remove chlorine from new tap water, like a water conditioner does. I use this weekly, as stated on the label, to balance the aquarium water's PH. I've got a 38 gallon with large fancy fantail goldfish. They eat, pee and poop a lot. I was having an ammonia problem. Easy Balance Plus helps to eliminate waste, uneaten food, and the ammonia-reduces nitrates & phosphates. Regulates ideal PH. With weekly Easy Balance use, and recommended aeration & proper filtering, frequent water changes are reduced (once every 6 months). I've been using it to rid the tank of ammonia. After 2 months of use, my fish are happy and thriving. No ammonia issue! Reducing water changes will be an added plus!

Goldfish products

This is an excellent product that I have used for years. Just follow the directions and you won't have to make as many water changes to the freshwater tank. I must be doing something right because my goldfish, Thumper, is 13 years old.

Easy balance

So I bought this product after doing a water test for gh,kh,ph,nitrates, and nitrites etc. everything was perfect for my flowerhorn, but nitrates were at 80ppm and I couldn’t get them down. I bought this and boy did it make it cloudy like I just stirred up waste in the gravel. However within two days it cleared up and within 24 hours nitrates were at 0 ppm and everything else stayed where it was prior to using this. It hasn’t gotten cloudy again when I used it that following week. This was in a 44 gallon tank with one flowerhorn cichlid in case you wondered. In short ( 100%) recommend this product .

Don't have an aquarium without this stuff!

This, combined with Tetra Safe start plus is added on EVERY water change on 7 different aquariums. These two products have made maintenance MUCH easier and headache free!
