    Cycling products

    cycling products like stress zyme and "cycle" are very controversial and while a lot of people sya it works, a lot of people also reckon that it doesnt and that it is junk. its a classic case of seeing what works for your set-up, as everyone is different and our experiences all vary from one...

    phosphate and calcium?

    phosphates can also be found in ph altering products (eg: ph up/down), which can cause high amounts of algae to form which is why not many people would reccomend on here. HTH :D

    Lowering pH

    like the other said, altering your ph, especially when you already have fish in your tank, is not a good idea. also, the phosphates in most ph altering products cause exessive algae growth. HTH :D
