"No need to rinse."

Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted.

Eheim 3581090 Final Thoughts

"It's nice looking."

Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though!

"8 degrees."

Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. They arrived quickly and as promised. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. We like to name our new fish every month. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm.

"He LOVES them."

I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them.

Tetra 16350 First Impressions

"Who knows."

This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry.

Tetra 16350 Final Thoughts

"This jar is big mind you."

Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water.

"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.

"He was fine in no time."

Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. I just change them when they get clogged. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. 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. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

"Only time will tell."

Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. I've used it for years with great results. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. It does not last or do its job after that. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer.

The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. It does not last or do its job after that. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct.

"DO RECOMEND!"

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. They surely don't last in tank very long. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.

"I have a 2."

I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. I will purchase this again when needed. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank.

I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium.

"Mini pumps."

So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I can't find them any where's else. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move.

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. In terms of taking water out, it's great. I just change them when they get clogged. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years.
