"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.

"I bought the Aqueon 2."

I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia.

"Plenty powerful."

Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's.

H2Pro 24GT Final Thoughts

"They work perfectly."

I just change them when they get clogged. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. We use it when we clean& change out water. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully.

4. Aquarium Filter Pad - Premium True Dual Density Aquarium Filter Media Roll for Crystal Clear Water

User Ratings: 82 1

Aquatic Experts First Impressions

"That said."

Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

  • Aquarium Filter Pad - Premium True Dual Density Aquarium Filter Media Roll for Crystal Clear Water
  • CUSTOMER AND PROFESSIONALS CHOICE - Our true DUAL DENSITY FILTER ROLL is the TOP CHOICE for cut to size aquarium filter material. Our NEW 3rd generation dual layer aquarium filter pads are even thicker than before. The top layer's open fiber construction traps LARGER PARTICLES while the bottom layer's dense fiber network TRAPS FINE PARTICLES - working together to produce crystal clear water in your aquarium.
  • CUT TO FIT - Made in the USA! Our FilterFirst PREMIUM BONDED FILTER ROLL can easily be cut to any size needed and WILL SAVE YOU EVEN MORE MONEY over purchasing ready-made, pre-cut filter material. Our poly filter pad is PERFECT FOR FRESHWATER OR SALTWATER aquariums as a prefilter for wet/dry filters, sumps, canister filters, aquaponics system, and much more. You will receive one 12 inch by 72 inch by 3/4 inch thick filter pad.
  • HIGH QUALITY AND DURABLE - Our filter floss aquarium pad is CONSTRUCTED OF DURABLE POLYESTER FIBERS bonded by our special resin to give it EXCEPTIONAL STRENGTH. The lower section of our pad is made by taking layers of resilient fibers through a process to tighten and entangle the fibers into a dense network producing a thin firm layer, perfect for removing fine debris. Our premium pads' consistent, reliable design gives SUPERIOR FILTRATION.
  • IMPROVE WATER QUALITY- Place our FilterFirst DUAL ACTION POLYFILTER PAD in flowing water with the open weave side up to trap uneaten food, waste, decaying plants, detritus, and other large and fine floating particulates from the water. Changing filter media pads regularly will INCREASE WATER QUALITY by removing solid organic compounds before they continue to break down and add additional nutrients (which can increase algae growth) to the water in your fish tank.
  • ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY - Our aquarium filter media roll is completely safe for all fish and other aquatic life. FilterFirst is made without dyes.

"Love these pumps."

It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I like API products and this is no different. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them.

"Fish eat them."

Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now.

Tetra 77080 First Impressions

"I promise you it fits."

I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

  • Tetra TetraPRO Tropical Color Crisps With Biotin for Fishes
  • TROPICAL FORMULATION: TetraPro Tropical Color Crisps provide advanced nutrition for the discerning tropical fish-keeper.
  • OPTIMAL HEALTH: Made with exclusive low-heat process that preserves essential vitamins and nutrients – enhanced with biotin to support fish’s immune system.

"I love these!"

I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. In my opinion there's nothing better.

"I have a 2."

Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. It does not last or do its job after that. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water.
