    i have a few of their products and I use them as instructed but I haven't used them much and I'm not sure how well they are working I started using the microbe-lift xtream after water changes to add buffers to the water, I have too buy water my tap water is unsafe, and even tho I read good things about them I'd like to hear some real opinions

    IMO, most of the Microbe Lift products are pure snake oil, based on the idea that if you have dirty water, add something to it. Can you get any sillier than this? Wouldn't it make more sense to change the water in your goldfish bowl or maybe even move the fish to a suitable tank?

    I have used their koi clay, which is OK, but the claims they make for it are ridiculous.

    Don't you have a Petsmart or Petco you can go to? They carry Prime. I just looked up xtreme and it is not a substitute for Prime. Electrolytes, buffers, and "we won't tell you" don't sound effective to me.
