I think I'm gonna try the full strength bleach. The tank this particular pouch came from has always had problems and within a week, the pouch was a nice rust color. I will probably need to recharge the one in my planted tank but the one in my sorority is doing okay so far.

Yea, that's the lame thing about aquasoil.. it loses efficiency after a while so you gotta be careful with it.
