This liquid will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in fresh and salt water systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tanks syndrome". It is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia and nitrate. The bacteria employed are non-sulfur fixing and will not produce toxic hydrogen sulfide.
This product is completely harmless to all aquatic organisms as wellas aquatic plants, thus there is no danger of over use.

Can anyone tell me whether or not this product also dechorinates the water?
This is not really a one-star rating since I've never used it before, but the computer requires a rating of some sort.
*That Pet Place comment* This item does not de-chlorinate your water. I would suggest a product like Seachem's Prime.
What you read about this product is what you get. This products effectiveness to quickly setup your bacterial colony is for real. Do yourself a favor buy it. If you tried all the rest now try the best.
