    Welcome to TFP!!!

    We do not recommend the use of shock powders, algaecides, or clarifiers.

    We recommend following the ShockLevelAndMAINTAIN Process making use of one of the Recommended Test Kits.

    Please define "everything is good". We like numbers. Please post up your test results and what kit was used to get them.
