"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!

AquaClear A1394 First Impressions

"DO RECOMEND!"

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I will purchase this again when needed. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat!

AquaClear A1394 Final Thoughts

"Have it on low speed."

I like API products and this is no different. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. We like to name our new fish every month. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants.

3. Aqueon Tap Water Conditioner

Aqueon 100106005 First Impressions

"Buy another."

The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I really do need 1 that flows on its own.

"So far is going good."

The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product.

Tetra 29259 First Impressions

"Plenty powerful."

Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. I like API products and this is no different. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

Tetra 29259 Final Thoughts

"Mostly for betta's."

Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. No observable signs of stress in the fish. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. This will retain much of the bacteria needed.

User Ratings: 64 6

Luigi's First Impressions

"I bought 2!"

I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap.

  • ✔️️ - No Messy drips, and a sturdy one way valve to improve suction. You can clear 30L in about 5 minutes.

Luigi's Final Thoughts

"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.

6. Jasonwell Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Glass Algae Glass Cleaner Scrubber Floating Clean Brush

User Ratings: 67 6

Jasonwell First Impressions

"Just keep trying."

No observable signs of stress in the fish. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form.

  • Jasonwell Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Glass Algae Glass Cleaner Scrubber Floating Clean Brush
  • Clean algae and scum off of the inside of your aquarium the easy, fun way!
  • Strong magnetic forces cause the inside cleaning brush to follow the outside handle. Just wipe the outside, and the inside is cleaned!
  • The inside piece floats, so if it becomes separated from the outside piece, it's easy to retrieve.
  • Simply drag the no-scratch, felt-lined handle and inside your aquarium, the scrubber follows, cleaning as it goes
  • Important: Made for common glass fish tank, not for acrylic and low iron glass. Please choose the size by the thickness of your fish tank glass. The larger, the stronger the magnet.

Jasonwell Final Thoughts

"Buy another."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.

"I bought 2!"

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. I will purchase this again when needed. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

"Hope this helps!"

They arrived quickly and as promised. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6.

"Subtracted from the tank."

These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle.

"The hotter, the faster."

The siphon works well and does what it should. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. 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. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems.

It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy!
