"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.

"Highly recommended!"

Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful.

"8 degrees."

Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon!

"After searching online."

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. In terms of taking water out, it's great. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them.

"Highly recommended!"

Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I just change them when they get clogged. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. The siphon works well and does what it should.

"Have it on low speed."

Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems.

"I have a BioCube 29."

If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced.

I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water!

"This was perfect!"

5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. I have done this a several times with great results. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online.

Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. This will retain much of the bacteria needed.

It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it.

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required.
