"& 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.

Homasy FBA_VS-HG16-2 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Strong fish food smell."

Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. I hope you found this review helpful! Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever.

"This is great fish food."

I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. Have them on subscribe and save now. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

"I buy the large 7."

He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I have several similar products this one is my favorite.

"He didn't eat them day 1."

I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. In my opinion there's nothing better. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. They arrived quickly and as promised. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle.

"A clean needle works too."

Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. It does not last or do its job after that. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier.

"I personally love it."

I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. I just change them when they get clogged. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

"8 degrees."

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat!

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.

"5 ga beta fish bowl."

5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! We like to name our new fish every month. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.
