"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.

"Just keep trying."

I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it. I have done this a several times with great results.

"But far as sharp edges!"

The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. In my opinion there's nothing better.

3. Tetra TetraPRO Tropical Color Crisps With Biotin for Fishes

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.

"Fish eat them."

I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. I hope you found this review helpful! If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! I even poured in extra to help with the healing. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation.

"Great price as well!"

I really do need 1 that flows on its own. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I've used it for years with great results. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change.

"Amazon wins again."

Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form.

VIVOSUN Final Thoughts

"Now we are in December."

It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. In my opinion there's nothing better. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. Have them on subscribe and save now.

"Added the heater to my 1."

The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. It does not last or do its job after that. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct.

"DO RECOMEND!"

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. They surely don't last in tank very long. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.

"Getting at the pet store."

Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

"Win-win, love it!"

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. 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!

Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. It does not last or do its job after that. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product.
