    iv gone for the ultralife red slime remover after doing a bit of research it seems to o it need 1 dose where as the other needs 2 doses however some people suggest there both the same product just a different brand. should be here tomorrow I'll update with how I get on. there will be loads left over as my little tank is only 125L and it treats 250uk gallons which is just under 1200L.

    just a quick note for anyone else thinking of using it the boyd stuff quote 300 gallons but that's US not UK which works out at 250 UK gallons the same as the ultralife stuff

    I Used the Ultralife. maybe its good in a smaller tank. but in my case and the size of my tank. it failed :( Used the boyd and zapped it first time.
    And ultralife recommends if the first dose failed . dose again. so it cost me!
