I'm guessing your not in the US. It took me a minute to find it but I did. Are you having a nitrate problem? How big is your tank? The product works by adding a bacteria that eats the waste. Another way to do this is by doing water changes.
Just curious, what made you want this? High nitrates? Hair algae? Cyano? Are you doing regular water changes?

I would do water changes. Also, what filter are you using? Can you get chemi-pure elite or purigen or both? I would keep doing water changes. Your nitrates aren't at critical levels so calm down and do water changes. A 5 gallon tank is hard to take care of. With the products recommended you will keep nitrates under control easily.

Chemipure elite is gfo and carbon. Basically it keeps water clear, free of smells, and keeps nitrates down. Purigen is an absorbant material that basically does the same thing but also helps reduce phoshates.
