    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior for minimizing harmful Nitrogen compounds I have been using this product for 3 years in a large aquarium that houses my goldfish which are notorious for producing a lot of Ammonia. Along with weekly changing of 25% of the tank water, this product helps to manage optimum bacteria for breaking Ammonia down into harmless compounds and provides other benefits. Fish skin is very healthy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Fish! I rescued a betta from a person who decided to keep it in a bowl. I didn't have time to cycle. So I decided to use this for my 10 gallon tank. It worked! I had to use more than the recommended. Though it didn't fully cycle my tank. It did help. If you're ever in a position like this I recommend to set up the tank (heater and filter), use a good water conditioner, use this product add double to to triple the dose (shake-shake-shake the bottle, the liquid should be cloudy when you pour it in the tank), and do 25% water change daily or every other day until ammonia and nitrite is 0ppm and nitrate is below 20ppm (I believe).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stress Zyme I have been using Stress Zyme for more than 10 years now and I love it. I have used it to help cycle all of my new aquariums and have been dazzled with the effect. I like that this product is fast acting and goes straight to work as soon as I add it to my tanks. Stress Zyme does exactly what it says it will do on the bottle and doesn't make my water cloudy either. I have also used Stress Zyme on my established tanks and have been very pleased to see that works fast even on established tanks. I would recommend this product to beginners and novices alike.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! I have been using this stuff for over a year, I own 3 freshwater aquariums. A 10 gallon, 22 gallon, and a 65 gallon. I do weekly 50% water changes, after every water change i add stress zyme. It helps "replenish" the beneficial bacteria that you take out of your gravel when using the gravel vacuum. I recommend this product to anyone who owns aquariums. great product and it helps speed up the fishless nitrogen cycle when starting out an aquarium.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great so far! As a newbie to the world of freshwater tropical aquariums (although my husband is more experienced), I did what most people do when they need to research something: I Googled. Having learned all about cycling and New Tank Syndrome and the Nitrogen cycle, etc. we used Stress Zyme and Stress Coat initially, and now our aquarium is in its 3rd week with 8 guppies, 4 cory cats, 3 otos, and a betta...and we STILL haven't seen any ammonia, nitrite, or nitrate with our daily water tests (both strips and drops, just to make sure). We haven't lost any fish, the water clears up from bacterial blooms pretty quickly, and it's just going fantastic so far. My husband attributes our good fortune to this product.
