The color of the crystal which did grow very quickly began to fade after only two days. The process to get the crystals to grow took more than 12 hours and was only safe for an adult. Palestine, TX

Deceptive. Comes in large box. In actuality the tank is extremely small. There could have easily had a tank four times its size in that box with the ingredients inside the tank. It only measures 3 3/4 x 6 inches. Also, instructions clearly state there are two Magic Solution packages. There was just one. Expensive for the actual product received. PLANTATION, FL
