"I totally recommend this."

The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be.

biOrb RF4012NET Final Thoughts

"It's not heavy though."

Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank.

"Just keep trying."

The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. They arrived quickly and as promised. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used.

Top Fin First Impressions

"It's not heavy though."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. The siphon works well and does what it should.

"A clean needle works too."

I must've measured correctly because it fits great! If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. I hope you found this review helpful! I really do need 1 that flows on its own. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient.

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. They arrived quickly and as promised. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge.

"Seems to be helping."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money.

"8 degrees."

Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. They arrived quickly and as promised. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. We like to name our new fish every month.

"I promise you it fits."

I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. The siphon works well and does what it should. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality.

"So it is worth the money."

I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. It does not last or do its job after that. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold.

"That said."

In my opinion there's nothing better. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

"Buy another."

So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years.

It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross.
