It's all I have used in my aquarium for water changes and when adding new fish and plants/decor...it seems to do the job very well and easy to use.

I've used this product for years for water replacements in my aquarium and have had no problems. It has worked on the multiple aquariums and beta bowls in our home.

Incompatiable with Protein Skimmer
Nowhere on the package or on this website does it indicate this product will cause protein skimmers to over-foam.
I've confirmed with the manufacturer of my skimmer that: "A “slime producing” additive e.g. Aqua Plus, AquaSafe, Stress Coat….." "These additives contain thick gel like agents that are not compatible with the vigorous air/water mixing that occurs in a venturi-style skimmer."
It takes upwards of three weeks for the AquaSafe Plus to degrade and the protein skimmer to function as designed. This has resulted in additional aquarium operating costs in the way of additional RO and salt to perform the frequent necessary water changes to compensate for the lost nutrient export capacity. Water changes do not correct the problem because the product coats the inside surfaces of the tank.
