"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.

"I'd give them 4."

The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. This water conditioner is a life saver! It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning.

"Mini pumps."

This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. We use it when we clean& change out water.

"DO RECOMEND!"

This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. No observable signs of stress in the fish. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear.

"1 for a 1."

Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I hope you found this review helpful! This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required.

"My Betta loves it."

Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. The siphon works well and does what it should. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

"Either way!"

Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

"I LOVE these little fish."

5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon! My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. I just change them when they get clogged. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.

"It works great."

This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. It does not last or do its job after that.

"These filter cartridges."

If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube.

"Great price."

This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. They surely don't last in tank very long. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS.
