Love the stuff

I used it mixed with food for my Peacock bass (cichla) to get rid of Hole in head and it worked like magic. I still use it every feeding to prevent and never had a problem. Colors up the fish and they look very healthy.

Newer Vita-Chem not so good.

For the record, I used this product for many years from about '94 to '99 and I loved it. My fish always colored up a lot whenever I put it in the water.However, this stuff is NOT the same product. they have added omega-3 fatty acids which clump up and make little particles float around your tank for about 3 or 4 days. I remember the old stuff I used to use as being mostly transparent and red in color. The new stuff is a thick yellow mucky substance.In its defense, my rasboras did really color up after eating a lot of the particles. Boyd needs to put this in a fish food and give us the old Vita-Chem back or at least start making the old version as well as the new stuff. Kudos to Customer Service though for sending me a new bottle after the first one arrived with a broken seal. They sent it out with no questions asked and in the most bullet proof packing I have ever seen. Boyd's products are always great and I recomend them even if it's one I haven't tried but, I won't be getting this stuff again; it's just too messy.
