I've heard they're great, but usually I just hear that it's a scam.
I don't understand what they are supposed to do, but after trying to research it, I don't understand how they do what they claim to do.
I think it's a scam. I understand how everything else in this hobby works...
Here's page 3 of an old thread on this. I'm thick-skinned and am ready to take another public stoning if it comes. I have no idea how these work, or even exactly what they do. However, I'll never have another tank without one. I still never have really heard of anyone who tried this thing and didn't like it; but heard from lots of folks who know why it can't work. Since this last thread; I've talked to at least a dozen tank maintenance folks who use them and they all love it; I also know they are an established, legit company. I had one small one when this old thread died, now have them on all my tanks. They have a 6 month guarantee (I think they even refund postage); so you sure don't have anything to lose by trying one. BTW: I don't pretend that every claim they make is 100% true; only that I know they do what I've mentioned in previous threads. I now have removed one skimmer and have 3 more that doesn't do much; until the Eco has been off for a while. I'll be removing them also. https://forums.saltwaterfish.com/t/204667/anyone-ever-heard-of-an-ecoaqualizer/40
well on your testimonial i am going to try it on my daughters 29 gallon bio-cube that i have been fighting a algae problem since setting it up . and also on my 75 gallon which has been rock steady on water quality and semi good clarity since the set up
You can try it, but don't expect it to do miracles.
IMO it's a plecebo for aquariums. As long as nothing is dying and you're using this thing it must be working... All it is is a PVC tube with magnets taped to the inside.
