Rated 5 out of 5 by whitley Fish must be tough
I read reviews for first time yeterday after looking for dosage online. I have to admitt I have been using product for a year before checking dosage. I have been over doseing big time. Just to control algae on glass. I have had my goldfish for 7 years now they are beautiful. I guess from reading other reviews my goldfish must be tough as nails. Because tetra has no effect on them at all. It does a great job keeping my tank looking great. But also my tap water has clorine in it and that doesn't bother them either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosem Very helpful product
I have used this product for a long time with no adverse effect in my aquarium. However, I have not been removing the activated charcoal and now just wondered about that. My question was answered and now I will remove it for a few hours to improve the results of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freak_ga It's an amazing product.
All right everyone say hello to my little friend. :-) please allow me to start by saying I am not a fan of using chemicals at all. Heck even my garden is 100% organic I raise my own chickens and hunt a lot of my own food. However sometimes even poison can be a good thing if used wisely and carefully. For quite some time now I have battled Green Spot algae to no avail because even in healthy tanks with bright lighting you're going to get green spot algae on leaves no matter how healthy your plants may be. But for me the real problem started about a month ago when I had a lot going on and so did my wife. We had a brief failure to communicate and she thought I was forgetting to feed my fish LOL. I am not saying anything is her fault at all. But the fish ended up being fed double time everyday for about a week meaning that I was feeding them their usual amount which is slightly too much and my wife was feeding them her usual amount which is a very caring healthy motherly dose of too much. And boom that was a recipe for disaster. In no time I had pea soup for water even though my aquarium is heavily planted and I have a filter big enough for a tank twice its size and a powerful water polisher there was nothing I could do to remedy the green water algae. I was even doing three 75 percent water changes a week to no avail. Then I started seeing hair algae Black Beard algae the Green Spot algae got out of control and the brown algae went crazy. It got so bad that I was to the point of nearly hanging up my hat. I did a lot of research and refused the idea of chemicals. Then the other night I did what I should I have done in the beginning I listened to my wife. We were in Walmart and she pointed this stuff out to me. The main reason I was so scared to use this chemical was the fact that algae is in fact a plant at its lowest form. So it made no sense to me how a chemical could kill one plant while sparing another. I took the chance and still skeptical I dosed my aquarium with half the recommended amount. I then took my seat in front of the Aquarium and watched the white filter pad on my water polisher turn hunter green within 5 minutes. I took the filter out gave it a good wash replaced it and sat back down to see my aquarium turn crystal clear Within 30 minutes. Now completely astonished I approached my wife saying well honey you were right and of course I got the mmm hmmm I told you so bit. LOL then I gave her a big kiss saying well I'm very glad you did. I have held back on Advertising for this product until today because I wanted to make sure none of my plants or fish were affected. And as I had hoped nothing went wrong at all. That is at least with my 20 gallon tank. In my betta tank it caused an ammonia Spike. I believe this is because I used the full recommended dose and the betta tank is very small. It says on the instructions on the bottle and on the website that this should not be used in newly set-up tanks. This is because not only does it kill algae but it can harm the beneficial bacteria in the filter system. So really I should say use it at your own risk and be sure that you do not have any snails or crustaceans including invertebrates in your aquarium. Because it says on their site it will kill them deader than a doornail. with the first dose. I also wouldn't recommend using it at full strength seeing as a half of a dose was like a tactical Warhead for my problem. But this stuff is no joke it decimated all of the Green Spot algae and destroyed the green water algae and it is taking its time on the black beard but it is melting it away and the brown algae threw in the towel the first day. I apologize for being long-winded but I am quite ecstatic about the results of using this product. So thank you for your time and I wish you all the luck and Fortune you can possibly have. :-)
