I like this stuff a lot. I’m new to the hobby and spend a lot of time in fish forums. This product was talked about a lot. And I knew I wanted to pick some up for water changes and/or stressful moments. I use all seachem products. But their stress product is more like a medication. It has a disinfectant in it. I was wanting something to chill the fish out and have healing properties. A slime coat product. This product fits that bill. So yes I am going to be adding it to every water change or new addition....basically once a week.
At the time, my fish I had somehow...well say he bumped his head, ramming it into the gravel trying to get snail food. This healed it right up. And he noticeably calms down. He really does seem very peaceful after I add this. And it’s not temporary. His whole demeanor has changed.
I like that this ia slime coat focused. I like the extra vitamins. I feel like a better fish parent because of this product.
If ever a time comes that I need to medicate this product will be an obvious additions. It absorbs medications and sticks it on the fish. It’s just a great product.
It’s a little odd that’s kordon isn’t as popular as it used to be. I’m glad I found this and was able to buy it.
This is a should-have potion for your fishy friends, useful for preventative health care and maintenance. It's hard to say if it can be proven to do anything, however I seem to notice less stress amongst the fish. Improved slime coat and beneficial vitamins/herbs/etc. are also nice theoretical benefits. Supposedly it's also particularly useful while shipping or transporting fish because of the de-stressing ability. While not a mandatory purchase, it's certainly smart to have this on-hand as another weapon in your arsenal to heal sick/injured fish or to just maintain their general health.
I bought this to help my betta's fins after a long bout of fin & tail rot, and it's definitely helped. The regrowth began soon after the 1st dose (0.25tsp for a 3.5gal tank), and is continuing. That's wonderful, but I don't like that it makes the water a little cloudy and dark yellow. I've not added anything else new.
While I love that it's helping my fish, I hate that it makes the aquarium appear dirty.
I love it! I use Kordon's with every water change or signs of distress. I had an injured Cory that healed quickly with the use of this product and daily water changes. I also use it for my Crowntail's fins when looking tattered and within 48 hours, he's back to sassy! I always use this product when transporting or adding new fish. (I bring a small bottle to the fish store and add a few drops to the water in the bag) I don't use it with my aquatic amphibians, only fish. Much better than the other brands I've used in the past.
I love this stuff. I had added two Chinese shrimp to my 5 gallon and they totally threw off the bio load in my tank which gave my beta fin rot. I moved the shrimp to another tank but his fins weren't healing even after using beta fix. I read about kordons fish protection and after a few days my beta is much more spry and colorful. This stuff is awesome!
Fancy goldfish are fairly delicate and they're notorious for getting sick no matter how hard you work to keep their water pristine with twice a week w/c. The Kordon Fish Protector is exactly what fish need should they get sick because it helps bind medicine to their bodies in their slime-layer, making healing quicker and more effective. Also excellent for transporting goldfish in their bags from breeder to home. I can tell you, it saved my ill fancy goldies and saved me lots of money!
I had a betta with shredded fins from stress and the poor water the fish store had him in. I did small water changes and added this product daily for a week. The changes in the fish's demeanor and appearance was almost immediate. He felt so much better overnight. After 3 days, I saw new fin growth. I will always have this on hand.
It's great for boosting their immune system. Use it when you do a water change or transportation so they don't stress. If you're treating them for anything, it helps it work better and adds extra slimecoat. Anyone who owns fish should have this. Your fish will thank you. It's a good size bottle too that will last you awhile. The only time you shouldn't use it is when the gills are swollen and full of mucus and having a hard time breathing.
