As near as I can tell, it works exactly like IAL's. I hd an eBay contact who sold IAL for $3 a pack, but now the price has doubled and she is no longer around. I thought I would give it a try. The pH has held at 7.2 steady and the temp is hanging at 82`.
Daddy is very happy this morning, had a fly land in the tank and he went nuts, I helped and scooped it out with a net. This is my first spawn in four years or so, and the fish's first time ever, so we will see.
