"1 for a 1."

I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly.

Penn-Plax ST25 Final Thoughts

"This does the job well."

The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! It does not last or do its job after that. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. This water conditioner is a life saver!

"Thank goodness!"

I like API products and this is no different. This water conditioner is a life saver! I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20.

"Hope this helps!"

I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom.

"The fish like them fine."

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one.

"Mini pumps."

So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I can't find them any where's else. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move.

"It works great."

Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. This water conditioner is a life saver! Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier.

"8 degrees."

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic.

These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm.

"I promise you it fits."

In terms of taking water out, it's great. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean.

"I recommend this one."

Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time. I have done this a several times with great results. I will purchase this again when needed. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump.

"I LOVE these little fish."

I've used it for years with great results. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. I like API products and this is no different. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances.

"Just keep trying."

No observable signs of stress in the fish. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form.

  • Simply drag the no-scratch, felt-lined handle and inside your aquarium, the scrubber follows, cleaning as it goes
  • Important: Made for common glass fish tank, not for acrylic and low iron glass. Please choose the size by the thickness of your fish tank glass. The larger, the stronger the magnet.

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.
