"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.

2. Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml

User Ratings: 87 2

Seachem First Impressions

"It's nice looking."

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. In my opinion there's nothing better. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. The siphon works well and does what it should. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Have them on subscribe and save now. I really do need 1 that flows on its own.

  • Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - for Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 500 ml
  • TANK STABILIZATION: Seachem Stability will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome".
  • TREATMENT: Stability is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
  • BACTERIA GROWTH: The necessary conditions for the growth of Stability's bacteria strains encompass a very broad range. When other bacteria begin to die off (usually from high organic loads caused by the unknown death of an organism), Stability simply becomes more effective.
  • USE: Shake Seachem Stability well before use and turn off UV/ozone filter. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 1 capful for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days. Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as dosage is maintained for 7 days.
  • SAFE: The bacteria employed by Stability are non-sulfur fixing and will not produce toxic hydrogen sulfide. Stability is completely harmless to all aquatic organisms as well as aquatic plants, thus there is no danger of overuse.

Seachem Final Thoughts

"At a time."

Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. No observable signs of stress in the fish. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. I can't find them any where's else. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required.

"Who knows."

I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. They arrived quickly and as promised. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry.

MarineLand PA0137-04 Final Thoughts

"Great buy!"

I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct.

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.

"So it is worth the money."

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. They arrived quickly and as promised. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank.

"Seems to be helping."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money.

"Poor thing."

Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. We like to name our new fish every month. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium.

"I totally recommend this."

It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. I have done this a several times with great results. 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. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted.

"And works."

Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move.
