Effective and Safe

Comments: I battled a red slime / cyano-bacteria outbreak in my reef tank for nearly six months with everything from frequent water changes and cleaning, to red slime algae removers. All water parameters tested normally, so I could not identify the cause. Based on a number of recent online discussions of EM Erthromycin and Maracyn as effective weapons, I finally bit the bullet and resorted to this. API EM Erthromycin immediately knocked back the cyanobacteria with no harmful effect on any of my livestock - fish, corals or inverts. I could detect no discernable effect on my bacteriological filter, based on frequent water testing. The tank was slime-free within 48 hours, allowing me to finally gain the upper hand in managing this problem. It does make your skimmer go wild, so best to turn it off during treatment. All-in-all, very effective and safe.

Comments: QUTSTANDING PRODUCT EVEN BETTER THAN ADVERTISED! I purchased this product out of sheer desparation because my 55 gallon fresh water aquarium was badly contaminated with blue-green algae which smells fishy and swampy and was covering almost all of my legitamate water plants. It turns out that this "alage" was actually cyanobacterium, not alage. This product absolute destroyed the infestation and now the water no longer smells like a rotting swamp and my water is crystal clear. I could also see the increase in the energy level of my fish and shrimp.THIS IS THE REAL DEAL.

Comments: I bought this not for actual medication but rather to help eradicate a bunch of BBA - worked like a charm. I used 1 packet (for my 100g) after each water change and it did a great job of killing off the algae.
