Rated 5 out of 5 by from what happened in my tank i had a lot of brown slimy algae in my 29 gal baby pleco tank. I tried for some time to get rid of it and noting happened. it just got worse I don't use chemicals in my fish so really had to persuade myself to use this product. it killed the algae all right but there was so much of it that it clogged the canister , the tank went bad as the algae rotted quickly. I had to break down the tank and start over. lost 4 fish. my advice is to use the product early not after you let the tank go too long. dying stuff even algae begins to rot and bad things happen. the product worked exactly as advertised, it was entirely my error that things went wrong. also I do not get rid of green algae as my baby fish use it for first food,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My tank has never been this clear !!! I was Elated by the results of AlgaeFix. I have had my 10 gallon aquarium for two months now. After the first 2 weeks it had a white cloudiness, probably Bacteria Bloom. After three weeks the water became cloudier and green, greener and greener. Algae Bloom. My tank does get some sunlight. I could not get my tank clear, even with 25% water changes once or twice a week. After adding 14 drops as directed and JUST 3-4 Hours Later...WOW!!! My tank is now crystal clear!!! Its never been clearer. The instructions say to add 1 dose per week thereafter. I definitely will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Product My tank was green to the point I had a hard time seeing my fish. My tank was in the dark for the last week.(trying to control algae) I put in the recommened amount for a 55 gal tank and walked away. My husband came in 15 minutes later and was going to add the chemical also. He flipped on the light and said "WOW" my tank was so clear and it was only about 15 mins. It is now 1 day later and the tank is crystal clear. This is a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product This product is great. I had an algae bloom that I could not seem to reduce. I used the appropriate amount listed on the bottle before I went to bed. The next morning, the tank was crystal clear. The water's never been this clear. I would recommend this product to any aquarium owner. A+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I had a very bad algae problem, and my snail just could not keep up with it. So I did some research and found this product. Used it after cleaning my tank and it cleaned the rest of the algae off the walls! I went away for a few days and when I got back, the tank was still algae free! I would recommend this product 100%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I had algae bllow in my 26 g. Changed all water, scrubbed the items, EVERYTHING! Suspended algae kept coming back. Changed filters, did 20% water changes, nothing worked. All levels were perfect, but water was a green cloud. Put this in, and BAM, within 10 minutes, the water was lightly cloudy with no green. And within 2 hours, it was crystal clear. Excellent product!
