Retired due to health reasons and too much time on my hands I started cruising You Tube. I rediscovered Tropical Fish. Why not? Not very mobile these days and needing something to challenge my mind. That makes me a New Be to the hobby. Baby steps.... The best help I gleaned from over 40 You Tube channels came from the Aquarium Co-Op channel. It just seemed this was my best choice to restart this hobby. My first plants and accessories were ordered. I ordered a 10 gallon starter kit from Wal-Mart. It arrived and I set it up. The next day my Aquarium Co-Op ordered arrived. With great care I planted my new plants and treated them to Easy Green. I was a Happy camper. The next day the Aquarium sprung a leak. Oh crap, (excuse the French), panic time. I have a plastic storage container that worked perfectly. About 6 gallons saved. Moved plants, gravel and driftwood to the container. Cleaned, dried and inspected the tank. Ordered some silicone sealer. Three days later I resealed the aquarium. 2 days to cure and refilled half way to leak test. 2 hours later I thought I discovered another leak. Drain and dry. I resealed the entire bottom. Inside and out. It was during this time I determined the second leak wasn't a leak. It was water trapped between the glass and plastic molding around the bottom from my sloppy refilling. I never implied I was a Rocket scientist. Non the less, 2 days to cure, I refilled the aquarium. Let it sit overnight. All dry in the morning. I returned my gravel, driftwood, and plants to the Aquarium. These plants have been put through the wringer and all I could do for them during this crazy several days was to hit them with a little EASY GREEN every few days. THEY ALL SURVIVED. Would I buy EASY GREEN again? IT IS THE ONLY PRODUCT that DID NOT disappoint me in this restart in the hobby. Bonus! I have 2 snails. Guess hitch hikers with the plants. We are ready for fish. I AM A HAPPY AQUARIUM CO-OP CUSTOMER.
For the most part, the Easy Green seems to be working. I still had some leaves that started yellowing even after I started using it. I have all easy low light plants but I do have a lot of them, so I have to dose heavier than what is recommended, which can be kind of a crapshoot. But overall, it's simple, affordable, and my plants are looking much better. I will order it again.
I've used this product for three weeks and I have already seen an improvement in my plants. They have become taller and greener. My favorite thing about this product is the convenience, I use it once a week and I do not have to worry about supplementing any with any other ferts. Thank you, Cory!
Been dosing this in 2 of my 3 planted tanks. So far the plants are looking amazing. Growth rate seems to have increased but the main noticeable differences is the shades of green/red the plants display. Overall would recommend.
I was so happy to finally support aquarium co-op after watching their videos for so long. Not only did I get to support them in what they do, but also I got to see some good growth in my planted tanks! It works!
