I had this bookmarked years ago and had forgotten all about it. There are about 300 articles on this site now, and I like the author's approach. He remains anonymous but is a degreed chemist and works in research science. He tests products against each other and uses a control tank with nothing added in most his tests. Some of the articles I've run across confirmed my prior hunches such as bacteria in a bottle being snake oil. When I set my fish store up, I had 50 systems or individual tanks to cycle where that proved out to me. Similarly with Prime not detoxifying ammonia. But some surprised me with the results, particularly most "chemical filtration" products such as Purigen: 7.4.6. Purigen There's a ton of misleading marketing in this hobby and lots of claims that are downright fraudulent are made by manufacturers so I'm happy that some are at least being tested. His site isn't the best laid out for navigation, but there are related links at the bottom of each page.
