Acurel F:

  • Wonderful Product!

    I have tried other products, but nothing works as well as Acurel F! Soon after putting it in the water the water is EXTREMELY clear. This product is amazing!

  • Does what it says

    This product is amazing and truly does what it says. I had problems with water clarity until now. If you have cloudy water this product is a must!!!

  • This stuff is a miracle worker

    I love Acurel F every time I get a cloudy aquarium I use this it is a miracle worker. It makes my aquarium crystal clear in just a few hours. Sometimes you need to add a second application if the cloudiness is really bad… it is a wonderful product to have on hand because no one likes to look at a cloudy aquarium.. One tip use the lowest dose which is 2 drops per gallon of water. If it’s not clear in a few hours, dose again. 2 drops per gallon its best to start out smaller doses then larger doses. I’ve never had to put more than 2 separate doses in ever


    This product is great. We’ve been trying to establish our tank for about a month. Finally got chemical balance right, now we had the cloudy water issue to resolve, tried topfin no dice. Got the Acurel F-25 and BAM it did the trick for us. LOVE it. Our tank is crystal clear. The fish seem happier too. Thanks to Utube for recommendation and Petco for having the sense to sell it.

  • It’s Crystal Clear… This Product is Awesome!

    It’s a Miracle!!!

    I haven’t had a decent clear tank of water since I first set up my tank. It’s a little 5.5 Gallon. The only time it was clear was when I first filled it. Since then… it’s been various levels of cloudiness. I filled it with Well water. I added the recommended conditioners. It being a new tank, I added “seed” fish (Fathead Minnows). All but one of the fish died. I had a very bad case of New Tank Syndrome. I decided to start over. I cleaned the heck out of everything. This time I used Spring water. I added the conditioners. It started out crystal clear… but after a couple of days, clouded up again. I used a water clarifier… a floculant type… it did zip… a waste of money. The water tested OK… but remained cloudy. I decided to be patient. I did a lot of research… joined forums… I followed all the advice I could find about setting up a new tank… and getting the water right biologically. I added this, that, and the other thing… as recommended. Nothing Worked. I used 3 other water treatment products that all made fantastic claims about creating a crystal clear, biologically balanced, environment in my aquarium.

    2 1/2 months into it with my cloudy tank, and just one Fathead Minnow left… he was from the first batch… apparently a hardy little guy. Just for fun, I added a Crayfish that I found in a nearby creek (tons of fun, extremely entertaining, super hardy and easy to care for… and gets along great with my Fathead Minnow). He’s doing awesome, but eats vegetables, algae wafers, frozen shrimp, etc… anything/everything you throw in the tank. The water was always cloudy… and I thought, with the salad bar my Crayfish was eating… the water would never clear up.

    I wandered into Petco to browse around. I found the “Acurel F” and read the label. I thought, Ok, I’ll bite. I bought the “Accurel F”, but didn’t get my hopes up. I followed the directions. I added 2 drops per gallon (the minimum recommended amount). About 2 hours later I checked it. It was very clear, a significant difference… but I thought not quite a 100%. I added 5 more drops. The recommendations were to start with 2-4 drops per gallon, so I was still in the range. Within 4 hours, as stated, as claimed, as promised, on the package… Crystal Clear Water. Beautiful!

    My recommendation… start with the lowest dose… and work your way up as necessary. I’ve been maintaining the clarity in my 5.5 Gal. tank with just 2 drops a day.

    “Accurel F” – Awesome Product.

  • THE BEST!!!

    I’ve tried many clarifiers on the market and had no luck. I have a 36g & a 10g tank. Both with a hazy white cloud just lingering forever. My 36g is equipped with 2 filters (Marineland Emperor 280 Pro Series & Aqueon CA30). The 10g has a Marineland 100. They help filter out the debris & waste but would not remove the white haze. I watched a couple of videos on YouTube but I was still skeptical.

    Today I received my order of Acurel F 25 (ordered 3), pretty fast shipping too! I followed the directions and now both my 36g & 10g are CRYSTAL CLEAR!!! I noticed a huge difference within only 1 hour!!! My fishes look like they’re swimming on air and showing their true colors!!! By the way, this product is all natural 🙂 I’m very satisfied with Acurel F 25!!!

  • Amazing Product

    I have tried everything under the sun for the past year to keep my tanks clear. Gravel Cleaning, water changes, every treatment you can buy and it did not help. I saw Acurel and decided why not try it. This product is a MIRACLE! Dropped in the recommended dosage and it turned my two cesspools into eye candy! They are now crystal clear and have been ever since. I was about to sell and or give my tanks away…..and then I found Acurel!

  • Awesome product!

    This is the best thing I bought to clear up my tank. I use it every time after doing a water change. Keeps my tank crystal clear. Unlike other products which use chemicals, this is all natural. I highly recommend it!

  • This stuff works!!

    I was skeptical, cuz i’ve tried every water additive they sell, was changing the filters regularly, vacuuming the gravel almost every day, (i have a messy oscar and some dirty goldfish) nothing worked, the water was still cloudy…might clear up a little with a major water change, but within a day or two, water was cloudy again! I tried this stuff, and it really works! Not in “hours” like they try to make you believe, but with a good water change, and adding a good amount of this stuff, within 2-3 days it cleared up and the water has stayed CRYSTAL CLEAR for over a week now! Thats a first…. I was and still am shocked! This is coming from a real person writing a real review LOL

  • Didn’t believe it… until the next day!

    This product is the best thing I have ever spent a few bucks on. My tank had ZERO visibility. I tried many other products and had no results. Someone randomly mentioned this product to me, and I bought it laughing to myself that this was going to be another waste. I was wrong. By the next day my tank was crystal clear. There were a few times through the process that my tank looked worse but just give it time. This stuff works!!

Acurel E:

  • Acurel – Best there is

    This stuff is fantastic! Works fast! I tried several other products but have used only this for the last two years and will not change!!!

Acurel Media Pads:

  • I will purchase again!

    Acurel Phosphate Remover Media Pad By Acurel (Misc.)

    This filter saves me money in the long run. I cut to the size of my bio filter and wash the pad use again.
