    The right up is pretty complete.

    Sounds a bit dodgy... Havent heard of it before & it doesnt give any real info on what it actually does.
    Anyway, it seems like its main function is to clear up cloudy water & remove nitrates. (With some sort of polymer)
    If anyone has regular problems with cloudy water in a marine tank, then you are really doing something totally wrong... Just my 2c
    Curious to see what the other guys say...

    Its a natural plant extract for algeas, like the barley straw extract Interpet brought out as a natural way of controlling algae in ponds.

    Im also scepticall of "Natural " extracts , but its new , so only time will tell.

    ordered a couple of each size - be here monday afternoon.

    Food is like prime reef , just a softer flake and bigger flake ( which is great )
    Price about 20% cheaper than Prime reef if i remember correctly.
    Dont hold me to it :p

    Ha ha been bored whole week but too lazy to go anywhere or do anything.:p
    Might do that but the buying part will have to wait till next week for sure, especially if the gf comes along.:whistling:

    If i may quote wikipedia:
    So the cubes being / containing polymers does not make all polymers cubes...
    Rubber aint cubes.
    Have not seen this product, or heard of it, so really cannot comment. I have just gotten a litre of cubes, have crystal clear, nutrient free water, so dont think I'll need this stuff. Pity, would hav liked to test it and try and break it :)
