Product Review: Sime Stain Remover

 

First, this product is amazing! Now read my story on why it's amazing. Trust me it works.

After a long absence from the hobby of freshwater fish, my wife and I returned about a year and half ago. With a little bit of re-learning curve, the tank was doing great for a year almost. 

We have a happy bonded pair of EB Acara that breed regularly, a happy and large Clown Fish, several Rams and lots of Julii Cory--along with snails and other fish.


It all was going so well with regular maintenance, feeding them frozen worms and brine shrimp everyday, good water quality, no lose of life, pretty live plants...our tank was awesome!

Then it happened. Not sure why or how. And after HOURS of research and talking to the LPS folks, still no clearer answer was found. And nothing I did could fix this ugly Blue-Green slime covering everything in the tank. 

I tried it all--all the advice of experts. I did large water changes, cleaned all the plants with 3% Hydro-P and I would get the tank green free and BAM! the gross green slime would return quickly. 

I did everything suggested--more light, less light, new lights, more chemicals, less chemicals, more cleaning, anti-Algae treatments, less food, different food, different canister filter set-ups, and on and on (some of the attempts were pretty expensive too)... nothing worked. I mean Nothing At All. 

I was very close to throwing in the towel completely. Research shows the number 1 reason why people leave this hobby is Algae. That was almost me.

But finally one night after giving it one more shot and looking around on the internet I discovered that it is NOT Algae after all, but instead a bacteria. Called Cyanobacteria - Blue-green Algae (but its no Algae). 

So armed with this new information I stumbled onto this product on the hobby blogs and looked here on Amazon and read the reviews and looked at the pictures. Shocked I saw the exact same problem in those photos that we had!

So I ordered UltraLife immediately. 

And I'm very happy to report two weeks later it is all gone. No more Blue-Green Slime and as an added bonus my tank looks almost new again. All the live plants look healthier, the stuff in the tank looks cleaner and the sand on the bottom looks almost new again, the downed Zero is clean again. 

I am so thankful for this product! It actually changed my life and made me happy with the hobby that we have literally way over a thousand dollars invested in. And to think, I was about to throw it all away!

As the great reviews I read here said, why this product is not on the shelf of every LPS and major pet store chain is beyond me. 

Another reason why I guess I do almost 90% of my shopping here on Amazon. Anyway, if you have a bright green slime that looks like green Algae, it is not and to get rid of it completely -- use this amazing product, nothing else works, trust me. 

I simply took a large 2 liter bottle of UV freshwater sold at the nearby chain pet store, mixed in half the powder from the little bottle of UltraLife and let that sit for a few hours. 

Then I poured into my 80 gallon tank. Nothing happened at all for a few days, but then I could see it working some. It was breaking down and destroying the Blue-Green slime. 

It almost got it all after a week, but my tank was bad off. 

So I did a small water change and then repeated again. The rest of the small bottle of powder in another 2 liter freshwater UV purified store bottle and into the tank after it dissolved. Now another week later it is all gone and the tank looks great!

In the picture I've attached its gone. But just a short two weeks ago almost the entire bottom was covered in a really bright green slime. 

It was all over the plants, the downed Zero plane, and on the heater, the Co2 diffuser, the bio sponge filter, etc. -- no its completely gone! 

I will always have this product on hand for now on. Try it, it works and its amazing.

Reason #1: Finally, an ebook is written about Strawberry Startups!

We have no idea what a “strawberry startup” is until we chanced upon the following ebook.

StartupStorey.com’s Chief Editor, Moses, has published an ebook titled “The Strawberry Startup: Everything you need to know about turning your passion into a profitable business & how you can build a startup on your own” which has sold relatively well on Amazon, the iBookstore, Barnes & Noble and other online marketplaces.

What’s even more intriguing is that the book has garnered relatively positive reviews, especially on its Goodreads page. StartupStorey has featured a dedicated post about the ebook here.

Reason #2: You’ll learn something new from the success stories being featured.

Always wanted to be successful, rich or famous but not quite there yet?

Reading success stories give you different perspectives. Studies have shown that staying mentally stimulated can slow the progress of or even prevent the occurrence of Alzheimer’s and dementia, as keeping your brain active and engaged prevents it from ”growing old”.

We can look for inspiration from a success story and if we wish to follow a similar path we can learn the way to achieve our goals on a similar path. Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you never know when it might come in handy.

Reason #3: You may be the next success story featured on their website.
