Yeah, I guess the old addage, "if it sounds too good to be true, well it probably is".

I any event, still have no fish in the tank yet.

Read my other post on "LR too clean" to get my latest readings.


And the beat goes on

The idea is very appealing to many hobbiests. However, if these products really worked as advertised they would certainly have much more backing on these forums then they currently do. They also tend to be pretty expensive, I like to encourage people to, instead, get a few extra pounds of LR. Better for your tank in the long run.

Yeah, I know what you mean about expensive. The Turbostart and the express shipping ran me about $90 bucks. Coulda bought some LR with that.

You live and learn. Between the BS decorations, wet dry, standard tank lights, CC, and whatever else I've since deep six'd on this tank, I coulda bought a few hundred pounds of LR.
