    The smell of the die off will go away once cured.

    Don't just drop this into your tank!

    It's the Tar ballast but it has given me zero problems.

    The Cat's name is Angus. He has cancer and is undergoing Kemo. He has been very responsive to his treatments a despite the costs involved it's well worth it to see him feeling so much better. He is my Wifes Cat. It was a stray that broke into her house and adopted her and has been with her for 13 years
