5.0 out of 5 stars Algae be gone! Works really well, Feb. 10 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product is amazing.
I had this persistent green water algae problem that wasn't going away. Developed in a week. I bought this and just did 15% water changes twice and within a week, you couldn't even tell there was water at all- that's how clear it is. It looks even better than in the picture, which was 3 days ago.
We're on day 6 and this product has made my aquarium water crystal clear when you couldn't even see the fish before.
PROS: This one comes with its own power head. It's also very quiet.
CONS: Yep, another filter to make room for and plug in. However, I may unplug in soon as this "bloom" seems to be gone. Also, unsightly as you can see it through the water hanging in the back (now that the water is clear! Haha) but I'm putting in some tall plants to cover that up.

Overall- would definitely recommend if algae problematic.

This review is from: Secret Daughter (Paperback)
While I thought the sections about the Americans was pretty flat, the parts exploring India and their culture were eye opening and inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, July 26 2010
This review is from: La Dolce Vita Cookbook (Paperback)
This is the first cookbook that I read from cover to cover like a book. Rocco's inspiring stories are accompanied by vivid photography. Most of the recipes are incredibly simple and therefore easy to build upon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting book, Sept. 21 2008
This review is from: Water For Elephants (Paperback)
This book is a gem. It persists to stay in my mind and has been a true eye-opener into the life of the circus workers. From a vet's point of view as well as one who depends on the circus to survive- mind blowing.

I can usually tell how much I enjoyed a book by how much of it stays in my mind days after. This book is haunting my thoughts.

It will be a long while until I find another story such as this one.

This book is stunning. Some of the concepts explored in this work of art are branded in my mind forever. Very moving- the honesty and authenticity of the literature sent chills down my spine.

One of my favorite reads ever.
