"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!

"Or left a mark."

Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. In terms of taking water out, it's great. In my opinion there's nothing better.

"I LOVE these little fish."

The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins.

3. Python Pro-Clean Aquarium Gravel Washer and Siphon Kit, Small

Python 12PC First Impressions

"Either way!"

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank.

"After searching online."

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs.

"Now we are in December."

If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. I will purchase this again when needed. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Have them on subscribe and save now. This includes check valves on both.

"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.

"It's not heavy though."

If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. The siphon works well and does what it should. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20.

"So it is worth the money."

I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. It does not last or do its job after that. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold.

"I have a 2."

I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. Our water in this town is really disgusting. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

"Works like a charm."

Our water in this town is really disgusting. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. They arrived quickly and as promised. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"Kind of dirty."

The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. We like to name our new fish every month. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years.

"Ummm NOT FOR ME!"

They arrived quickly and as promised. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

"It's not heavy though."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. The siphon works well and does what it should.

"A clean needle works too."

I must've measured correctly because it fits great! If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. I hope you found this review helpful! I really do need 1 that flows on its own. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient.

"No need to rinse."

I have used marine land bio-wheel pump and filters for the past 20 yrs. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross.

"I LOVE these little fish."

Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be.

I have done this a several times with great results. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

"The hotter, the faster."

Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. I even poured in extra to help with the healing.
