Took about 4 days before my betta finally started eating these but after that he seems to love em. Not as messy as flakes can sometimes be so no bits of leftover food polluting tank. Will definitely be using these from now on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do what it claims, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This seems to kick start a cycle very quickly but my experience is it absolutely did not create an immediately safe environment for fish. Just over 2 weeks in and have needed to do daily water changes to combat high ammonia, nitrites and nitrates thoughout and fluval support were of no help when I questioned this. If you decide to use it then I strongly advise regular testing of water parameters as your fish might not be as happy as you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars These arrived pretty quickly and seem to be a good quality, 1 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These arrived pretty quickly and seem to be a good quality. Used for aquarium for first time and my fish seem much happier with slightly darker water and unexpected benefit my live plants seem to be fairing better too. I find boiling a couple for 15 minutes first gives you a dark concentrate to kickstart the water (can take quite a few days of yucky pale yellow otherwise). Putting a leave in the tank also gives a nice natural look too. If you decide to use quite a few to really darken watch your PH and ammonia but I find using the homemade concentrate and leaving just the 1 in tank -64 ltr - no problem. You also need to remove any activated carbon from filter otherwise it'll just extract it from water fairly quickly. There are other products out there that will neutralise metals other than carbon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disgrace and not even close to the picture, 12 Oct. 2014
Arrived quickly so don't think languishing in a mail depot could explain the appalling condition they arrived in. They were in a bag within a sturdyish box so at least some attempt seems to have been made to protect them in transit but still a couple had fell completely apart and the majority of the leaves on the others were yellow or mottled brown. Only 2 had any semblance of roots and even those were only 1 strand. On the basis that these plants can grow quickly I made the mistake of hoping what was left might perk up but in a matter of days I'm left with only 3 out of 10 that are not looking good at all and wish I'd just returned them straight away!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 20 Sept. 2014
Tank arrived really quick and fully intact which, as it was being transported quite a distance, i was a bit concerned about. I'm guessing from other reviews this has been a problem in the past but they really do put a lot of extra packaging to protect it (box within a box and really heavy duty bubble wrap both around tank and inside it) so would definitely be confident about ordering from them again. Seapets staff were really nice to deal with as well. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because of the filter. I know filters are for function not decoration but this one is really big, clunky and with dubious quality fixtures for securing it to the tank. The filter parts come completely apart with the slightest touch making it a real pain if you're trying to shift it even slightly when it's in-situ. The only positive is that it is really quiet. It also doesn't really generate a bubble stream for those who have fishes like mine that love to play in the bubbles so I think i'll be sticking with my old filter.


Hoppa 47litre folding lightweight shopping trolley shopping bag on wheels (Leopard)

5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommend it, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Due to hand injury I really needed something for shopping and didn't want to look like an old granny so these funky trolleys looked ideal. Arrived very quickly and only assembly required was to put wheels on - no instructions but took about 10 seconds to figure it out. Really lightweight but yet still feels robust and though you might not fit a weeks shopping for a family of four in it, the bag is a decent size. Some reviews mention the noise of the wheels when in use but i really didn't notice much noise at all. Also has a handy little pouch at the back for purse/keys and a hook that you can use to attach to a supermarket trolly. For the price these are an absolute bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth the money, 26 Dec. 2011
i've been drinking matcha for a few years now and have tried several types and I have to see in terms of quality this one is top of my list for the price. It has a lovely fresh green colour and is easy on the digestion which is a good indicator of quality. Will definitely be a repeat customer.

5.0 out of 5 stars hot flushes completely gone, 26 Dec. 2011
I started getting quite severe hot flushes/night sweats that were not only uncomfortable but were disrupting my sleep. I tried black cohosh which did help a bit but then by chance i discovered this product and have never looked back. within a couple of days hot flushes/night sweats were gone completely. I've been using this a few months now and will definitely continue. as an aside I don't know if it's connected with these tablets or not but i've also noticed my skin also seems to have taken on a healthier glow since i've been taking them.
