Exeactly what you expect and great service.
Quick easy process, arrived rarified than expected and was very effective. Will use PLAYITKoi for all my future needs. Thanks.
It worked very well!
Product arrived promptly and service went out of their way to make sure I got the needed receipt.
This is suprisingly effective and works great to anesthetize fish. As one other reviewer mentioned, be sure you have baking soda on hand when using as this is required during the fish sedation process.
