I was asked to try this in my fish tank. (Yes, I know it is for turtles) But, considering I raise VERY dirty fish, and nothing has kept the tank remotely close to clear, I was handed a bottle of this by a friend who bought it for his turtles. It works great for the turtles, I had my doubts about my tank, but for the first time, the tank is clear and has stayed that way so far for a month. It DID turn everything green at first. It seemed to have gotten cloudy. I believe that is the solids breaking down into smaller bits? I applied the double dose per gallon since it was the first time using it. I am going to pick up more because I have 3 tanks full of very large, muck creating fish, and the one I put this cleaner in is the only one that is clear. I have tried a regular water cleaner for fish, but most fish are not as dirty as the ones I have, so I blame the fish, not anything I have tried. This turtle cleaner has taken care of the job wonderfully. I just think it may be more concentrated because turtles are indeed dirtier than most fish. I would suggest using it at least once every 3 months if you don't use it every water change. The price seemed high for such a little bottle, and how many gallons I have to treat, but it does what it says, so with that in consideration, I am VERY happy with this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Awebb92 Works pretty well, but it turns stuff green
This does work pretty well. I don't use it weekly as the bottle says. I only use it when I change the water and I can tell a difference. It may not be the greatest difference unless my filter is new too, but I'm satisfied. The only complain I have is that it turns things green. Almost like algae. It gets stuck to my turtle's basking station, rocks, and my turtle's shell. It started getting on my tank's glass, but it comes off pretty easily. I can get it off the basking station and rocks with intense scrubbing. I'm in the process of trying to figure out how I clean it off my turtle's shell without upsetting him too much. That's my only complaint. Otherwise, this product works pretty well.
