Blue Ribbon 30790 First Impressions

"Works like a charm."

They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier.

Blue Ribbon 30790 Final Thoughts

"This does the job well."

Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. I have done this a several times with great results. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. I will purchase this again when needed.

"My betta lives in this 2."

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Have them on subscribe and save now. In terms of taking water out, it's great. I just change them when they get clogged. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank.

They arrived quickly and as promised. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. I will purchase this again when needed. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs.

"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. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear.

"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.

"Amazon wins again."

You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. The siphon works well and does what it should. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly.

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia.

"Now we are in December."

If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. This will retain much of the bacteria needed. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier.

"Amazon wins again."

So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

"My Betta loves it."

My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. Have them on subscribe and save now.

"Getting at the pet store."

Our water in this town is really disgusting. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water!

"This jar is big mind you."

I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly!

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I will purchase this again when needed.

"It does the job."

I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"This is great fish food."

But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

In terms of taking water out, it's great. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean.

"I recommend this one."

Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. I have done this a several times with great results. I will purchase this again when needed. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump.
