"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.

"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!

"No need to rinse."

A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I really do need 1 that flows on its own. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.

"And works."

We use it when we clean& change out water. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. In my opinion there's nothing better. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will.

"Looks great!"

Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's.

"The fish like them fine."

Our water in this town is really disgusting. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank.

"Who knows."

I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. They arrived quickly and as promised. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry.

"Great buy!"

I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct.

"I totally recommend this."

If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I will purchase this again when needed. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever.

It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins.

PULACO Mini Sumbersible Water Pump Final Thoughts

"Working as expected."

I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. This water conditioner is a life saver! Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic.
