Has anyone ever heard of this Product?

Amazon.com: AquaBella Bio-Enzyme Salt Water Treatment: Pet Supplies

From everything I have read about it, they say it works. No water changes for a year. I am not holding my breath, but people say it works and works well. They test their water and everything is fine. Thoughts??

I have not bought it, but thinking about it.

I'm not a pro with this sort of thing, but just general common sense would make me question this. It contains nitrates and nitrites and that is supposed to be good for fish and reduce stress???

Also...water changes take bad stuff out of your water and help replenish it. I can't see not removing for a year and everything staying in check. Especially for reef.

Almost sounds like a cycle "bottled bacteria" product.

The old saying if it sounds to good to be true it is comes to mind. Looking for things for shortcuts in this hobby can lead to disaster.

Agreed. I'm a fan of the Dr Tim's bottled bacteria for cycling, but this just does not sound right. Saltwater takes some time and effort. IMO, if someone is too lazy to do proper maintenance, then they are in the wrong hobby.

I agree, but I was just flipping thought Amazon looking for some supplies and came across this. Normally I would pass on something like this, but being that it had some very good reviews I was just wondering.
