i use this in conjunction with amquel. i use the latter whenever the water params are off while i use novaqua after the gravel vac is used. works perfectly and is on par with its competitors. echinacea is in the solution to boost it; that is why others use aloe vera and other supplements to help protect the fish. also, it is soupy, not thin fluid as other reviews have stated. to me, it is superior to its competitors and like amquel, under-rated. it is well worth the investment.
"DON'T BE FOOLED: This is NOT the Original "Bandage in a Bottle"!"
Several of us hobbyists have been complaining about the "new" Novaqua's effectiveness. Now we know why: This is simply the brand name owned by Kordon. The original patented Novaqua, which has been continually improved over ie, was and is still manufactured and invented by John F Kuns and his Aquasciecen Group. It is now marketed by Hikari as "Stress-X."
The original Novaqua nad Amquel is also combined in a product called "Ultimate."
I have used this since I first started (over 20 years ago), and I still use it now. It is great. Also, you can get this pretty cheap folks, just look around. I just bought 4 16 ounce bottles online for about $5.60 each!
