    Thalion - the thing is - one have to prove them wrong. There have been many manufacturers that have claimed that their "snake oil" products are the "next best thing" to beer..... BUT - in the end it was just disproven...

    There were a few products/brands that was questionable, and some people believed in it, and others didn't, ie:
    - F.O.R.M (funky old reef mud)
    - Organic Aqua
    etc... (can't remember the others now).....

    The best would be if someone in our reefkeeping community would be prepared to test the stuff out ourselves.... And then report back...

    Will test both tanks for PO4 tonight and do a out of the tank test first to see if it removes PO4. The other things (metals) I have never tested for. How does one test for Increased life span for fish?

    No - you cannot test for "increased life-span of fish", unless you are prepared to kill your fish :lol:

    The stuff supposed to be good, but it does not say it will resurrect fish from the dead;), just an increased life span. I think you have to be a necromancer or a cylon to do that.:whistling: Then we will need a resurrection tank near by:thumbup:

    Ok first report back.

    Using Tropic Marin PO4 test kit. My one tank was 0,1mg/l

    Took 1l of water out and put it in a container with a bag of the stuff, 30-45 min later tested the water again now it is <0,01mg/l.

    So the PO4 side of this stuff works.:thumbup:
