"& 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.

Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on.

"Fish eat them."

Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now.

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.

"Highly recommended!"

I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

AquaClear A1386 Final Thoughts

"I love these!"

I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. I just change them when they get clogged. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier.

"I have a 2."

The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! I hope you found this review helpful!

"48 the decision is easy."

Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. I have used marine land bio-wheel pump and filters for the past 20 yrs. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap.

"8 degrees."

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic.

"Works like a charm."

I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! We use it when we clean& change out water. I will purchase this again when needed.

"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.
