"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.

"Thank goodness!"

I like API products and this is no different. This water conditioner is a life saver! I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. They surely don't last in tank very long. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on.

Penn-Plax SBR10 Final Thoughts

"Hope this helps!"

I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom.

"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.

If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm.

"This does the job well."

The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. We like to name our new fish every month. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced.

5. Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml

User Ratings: 87 2

Seachem First Impressions

"It's nice looking."

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. In my opinion there's nothing better. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. The siphon works well and does what it should. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Have them on subscribe and save now. I really do need 1 that flows on its own.

  • Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml
  • TANK STABILIZATION: Seachem Stability will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome".
  • TREATMENT: Stability is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
  • BACTERIA GROWTH: The necessary conditions for the growth of Stability's bacteria strains encompass a very broad range. When other bacteria begin to die off (usually from high organic loads caused by the unknown death of an organism), Stability simply becomes more effective.
  • USE: Shake Seachem Stability well before use and turn off UV/ozone filter. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 1 capful for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days. Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days.
  • SAFE: The bacteria employed by Stability are non-sulfur fixing and will not produce toxic hydrogen sulfide. Stability is completely harmless to all aquatic organisms as well as aquatic plants, thus there is no danger of overuse.

Seachem Final Thoughts

"At a time."

Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. No observable signs of stress in the fish. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. I can't find them any where's else. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required.

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.

"I am new to the hobby."

Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless.

"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.
