"Have it on low speed."

I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. This water conditioner is a life saver! I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

NICREW ZJL-60A Final Thoughts

"I promise you it fits."

I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. The siphon works well and does what it should. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. But this is great utility tubing for a variety of other uses. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality.

User Ratings: 63 9

Koller Products Aq15005 First Impressions

"Or left a mark."

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. I hope you found this review helpful! I like API products and this is no different. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced.

"Love these pumps."

I will purchase this again when needed. I like API products and this is no different. In my opinion there's nothing better. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool.

"I like it."

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump.

"But far as sharp edges!"

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

"Seems to be helping."

5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium.

"This was perfect!"

It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross.

"No leaking air at all."

Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange.

Top Fin First Impressions

"Just keep trying."

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I will purchase this again when needed. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear.

"It does the job."

I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"I love these!"

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1.

"The fish like them fine."

Our water in this town is really disgusting. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank.

Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them.

"Kind of dirty."

I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. I have used marine land bio-wheel pump and filters for the past 20 yrs. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well.
