"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.

"That said."

The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1.

"I have a BioCube 29."

Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. We use it when we clean& change out water. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them.

3. Instant Ocean HoldFast Epoxy Stick, Fish Safe (HF-1), 4USoz./113g

User Ratings: 67 6

Instant Ocean HF-1 First Impressions

"But far as sharp edges!"

It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now.

Instant Ocean HF-1 Final Thoughts

"Only time will tell."

The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. Our water in this town is really disgusting. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless.

"He LOVES them."

These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap.

"This was perfect!"

Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

"8 degrees."

Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on.

As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. I can't find them any where's else. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. Have them on subscribe and save now. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"This jar is big mind you."

If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine.

"Amazon wins again."

It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. The siphon works well and does what it should. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. 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. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute.

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances.

Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants.
