    All depends on what caused the fish to loose the luster in the first place

    Did a Spring Treatment in early Feb because of the warm weather. After cleaning up the filter and using quick cure (3 times) --- seems like all luster have gone....;-))

    Personally, I prefer ProForm C. It's not as harsh as quick cure. I also cleaned my bio filter about a month ago, and it took a couple weeks to come back on line at this temp. and the luster is still coming back SLOWLY. I think your fish will recover nicely when the temps come back up. Try adding some MicrobeLift to the system. That seemed to help. It's good down to 50F.

    Well Dinh, you started your spring treatment a bit too early...The luster will come back....Like a nice deep car wax you cant rush it. But I think your fish should be ready for the show in April.
