"This is great fish food."

Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Have them on subscribe and save now. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I can't find them any where's else. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

Hikari 21328 Final Thoughts

"Mostly for betta's."

A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. 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! If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product.

"5 out of 5 stars."

This includes check valves on both. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz.

AQUANEAT Final Thoughts

"I am new to the hobby."

Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them.

Seachem First Impressions

"Great price as well!"

It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Have them on subscribe and save now.

Seachem Final Thoughts

"I have a 2."

Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. We like to name our new fish every month. In my opinion there's nothing better. In terms of taking water out, it's great. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again.

4. Tetra TetraPRO Tropical Color Crisps With Biotin for Fishes

User Ratings: 83 2

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.

  • Tetra TetraPRO Tropical Color Crisps With Biotin for Fishes
  • TROPICAL FORMULATION: TetraPro Tropical Color Crisps provide advanced nutrition for the discerning tropical fish-keeper.
  • OPTIMAL HEALTH: Made with exclusive low-heat process that preserves essential vitamins and nutrients – enhanced with biotin to support fish’s immune system.

Tetra 77080 Final Thoughts

"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.

Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. The siphon works well and does what it should. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

"Either way!"

Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. 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. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful.

"Kind of dirty."

I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I just change them when they get clogged. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules.

"Have it on low speed."

Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer.

SACKORANGE Final Thoughts

"I couldn't believe it!"

I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. This includes check valves on both. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. No observable signs of stress in the fish. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

"Great buy!"

I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. In my opinion there's nothing better.

Tetra 25845 Final Thoughts

"I have a 2."

Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. It does not last or do its job after that. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water.
