Maintains water clarity By Jim on 10/8/2016

The good: Does noticably increase water clarity, i.e., it works. This is particularly important in my tank as I can't use activated charcoal to improve clarity because it gives my Yellow Tang Lateral Line Disease. The bad: The effect only lasts a day, so it must be dosed every day, or at least every day that one wants clarified water. I have dosed a 500 ml bottle manually, which is a PITA, and am currently setting up a Neptune DOS for that purpose, but have to order special tubing (Tygon 2375 Ultra Chemical-Resistant from Amazon . 1/8" ID, 1/4" OD from Amazon) because the product smells like it has alcohol or methanol in it and that quickly wrecks ordinary Neptune silicone tubing. I found that out from using Red Sea NOPOX. At least Red Sea discloses that its product contains methanol, although it doesn't bother to disclose that methanol is incompatible with most peristaltic pump tubing. Korallen-Zucht, on the other hand, does/will not disclose the contents of any of its products so far as I can tell, which is can be highly frustrating When trying to automate dosing. I would much rather rely on an accurate content label than have to use my sometimes untrustworthy nose to detect alcohol/methanol in a product.
