"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.

"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.

"The hotter, the faster."

Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. In terms of taking water out, it's great.

"Came exactly as shown!"

I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. I can't find them any where's else. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product.

"The fish like them fine."

If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you.

"No leaking air at all."

Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube.

"Seems to be helping."

Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. I can't find them any where's else. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm.

"I have a 3."

This water conditioner is a life saver! I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. They surely don't last in tank very long. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank.

Tetra 77243 Final Thoughts

"Great price as well!"

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I've used it for years with great results. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube.

But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. I just change them when they get clogged. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money!

I will purchase this again when needed. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it.
