Equilibrium 300 grams
In my area of the southeast the water containsalmost no dissolved minerals. I sent back 2 water test kits because they failed to give a GH result. The kits turned out to work fine, so then when they checked my water, they told me the bad news: there's almost no minerals in it.
So my fish definitely NEED this product.
I add it in over several days, raising the GH from 0 to 6-7 over about 2 weeks.
I can see the difference in my fish, it's amazing.

Great, But Cakes
If you start a water change with RO water, like I do, then this product is essential. I use RO water because I can control the water chemistry that way, which means I can control the algae growth. This product provides the GH part of the equation. You would need the Alkaline Buffer product to add the KH. The only drawback is that it clumps and cakes much too much. I solve this by pouring the desired amount of Equilibrium into about a quart of water and using a hand mixer to make a milky fluid out of it. I then pour that mixture into the reservoir tank I use to store my RO water before pumping it into my tanks.
