"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!

"My betta lives in this 2."

I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again.

"They do the job well!"

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. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy.

"So it is worth the money."

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. They arrived quickly and as promised. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank.

"Seems to be helping."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money.

"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.

"& was still intact."

If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. We use it when we clean& change out water. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect.

"I LOVE these little fish."

Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

Aquatic Experts First Impressions

"That said."

Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

"Love these pumps."

It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I like API products and this is no different. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them.

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.

"I love these!"

So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I hope you found this review helpful! Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I have used marine land bio-wheel pump and filters for the past 20 yrs. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems.

I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. We like to name our new fish every month.

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. In terms of taking water out, it's great. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water.

"This jar is big mind you."

No observable signs of stress in the fish. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. They surely don't last in tank very long.
