As a former septic tank owner, I can tell you it works when used as directed. I know this as I stopped using it for 4 months in a row once as I was under the miss-guided impression that it was second rate snake oil. But I as had to unclog the septic pump 5 times when I went to pump out the tank, I came to realize this stuff worked. In the previous 4 years of using a product like that, I never had the pump clog even once. Unclogging a septic pump 5 times in 3 hours was all the evidence that I needed. I started using the product again and never had the pump clog for the next 2 years that I lived there. It was sold under a different name, but it was a bacteria additive in dried /spore form. Maybe I'm too old school, but I can't bring myself to add something to my aquarium that I used to buy to flush down the toilet. Just my personal hang-ups I guess
But I'm with Honey Badger on this, clean your darn filters when they need it.

0People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

yes, nothing beats regular maintenance. won't argue with that.
I wouldn't say that adding some good bacteria spores to your tank is 'adding crap' as you put it, but this is definitely something to keep an eye on. especially for those of us who like to have a big bioload.your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!
