"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.

API 111C Final Thoughts

"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.

"Subtracted from the tank."

Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! The siphon works well and does what it should. I can't find them any where's else.

"8 degrees."

I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. The siphon works well and does what it should. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I have done this a several times with great results. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump.

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. In terms of taking water out, it's great.

API 92B Final Thoughts

"This jar is big mind you."

No observable signs of stress in the fish. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. They surely don't last in tank very long.

"Subtracted from the tank."

The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances.

"My betta lives in this 2."

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.

"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.

"But does an amazing job."

4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly.

"5 ga beta fish bowl."

Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. This will retain much of the bacteria needed. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

"Mostly for betta's."

Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. No observable signs of stress in the fish. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. This will retain much of the bacteria needed.

I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges.

This water conditioner is a life saver! Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it.
