    It's a Seachem Product. From Seachem's website.

    Cichlid Trace™ supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated* to be necessary for proper fish health and growth. Unlike terrestrial animals, fish obtain nutrients from both their food and environment. Trace elements are normally depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation, thus it is important to restore them on a regular basis. Cichlid Trace™ contains only those elements actually demonstrated* to be required by fish."

    But like... Wouldn't you need to know the exact levels of all the minerals in your tank n ? That's why I'm wondering if anyone has ever used it. It sounds like one of those "too good to be true" products; something to scare the un-experienced fish keepers into wasting money.

    I dunno. Thoughts would be great.
