  • Chewy saved the day!

    By on

    I really don’t know what I would do without this product. The filter pump stopped working in my shrimp aquarium and I didn’t realize it. There was no aeration for way too long. I had a real problem. I lost some stock but was able to save most of them by quickly putting in a new pump and doing a major water change. SafeStart Plus saved the day by immediately cycling the water. I buy it in quantity now in case of emergencies. I truly wouldn’t be without it. Highly effective and highly recommended.

  • Cleanest Tank Ever

    By on

    I ordered this along with several other items, Easy Balance Plus, filters, a gravel cleaner, and a heater. My tank was a tad cloudy but when I added this and the Tetra Easy Balance, my tank is crystal clear. I haven't used the heater or gravel cleaner yet, didn't need to yet. Thank you Chewy for your excellent customer service and quick delivery!

    Just needed some extra BB when cleaning filters. Also the packaging by chewing is first class on anything liquid. Never be afraid to order liquid from chewy. They are the best for all animals.
