"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!

"Added the heater to my 1."

Super easy to use, no smell and safe. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I will purchase this again when needed. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it.

API 820D Final Thoughts

"Win-win, love it!"

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though!

3. Seachem Purigen Organic Filtration Resin

"I totally recommend this."

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I have done this a several times with great results. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges.

  • Seachem Purigen Organic Filtration Resin
  • FILTRATION: Purigen ranges in color from almost white (cream) to light yellow. Seachem Purigen is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water.
  • SELECTIVITY: Seachem Purigen is an organic filtration resin that works hard to remove nitrogenous compounds and waste produced by fish, corals, and even plants, making your water crystal clear.
  • CAPACITY: Being both spherical and macroreticular, Seachem Purigen has microscopic pores that increase its usable surface area to many times that of a purely spherical resin.
  • REGENERATION: Once Seachem’s Purigen is exhausted, it can be regenerated with a solution of bleach and water. The bleach will literally “burn off” the organics that have been removed from the tank.
  • SAFETY: Some slime coat products may permanently foul Purigen and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odor of bleach/chlorine is detectable. In case of doubt, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.

"They work perfectly."

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used.

"I love these!"

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank.

"This is great fish food."

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. The siphon works well and does what it should. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

"And he is a betta."

Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. No observable signs of stress in the fish. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

In my opinion there's nothing better. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

"Buy another."

So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years.

"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 recommend this one."

I like API products and this is no different. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. I will purchase this again when needed.

Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. I hope you found this review helpful! Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. Super easy to use, no smell and safe.

Tetra 77080 First Impressions

"I promise you it fits."

I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

"I love these!"

I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. In my opinion there's nothing better.

"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.
