"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.

"These filter cartridges."

Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. No observable signs of stress in the fish. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"Also, have some patience."

Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. This will retain much of the bacteria needed.

"Great price."

This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. They surely don't last in tank very long. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS.

"So it is worth the money."

Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me.

"I totally recommend this."

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I have done this a several times with great results. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges.

  • Seachem Purigen Organic Filtration Resin
  • FILTRATION: Purigen ranges in color from almost white (cream) to light yellow. Seachem Purigen is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water.
  • SELECTIVITY: Seachem Purigen is an organic filtration resin that works hard to remove nitrogenous compounds and waste produced by fish, corals, and even plants, making your water crystal clear.
  • CAPACITY: Being both spherical and macroreticular, Seachem Purigen has microscopic pores that increase its usable surface area to many times that of a purely spherical resin.
  • REGENERATION: Once Seachem’s Purigen is exhausted, it can be regenerated with a solution of bleach and water. The bleach will literally “burn off” the organics that have been removed from the tank.
  • SAFETY: Some slime coat products may permanently foul Purigen and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odor of bleach/chlorine is detectable. In case of doubt, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.

"They work perfectly."

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used.

This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump.

"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.

"Kind of dirty."

I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear.

"And he is a betta."

I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason.

"Looks great!"

Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank.
