"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. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. They surely don't last in tank very long. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on.

"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. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia.

I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's.

"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.

API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced.

"Now we are in December."

I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. No observable signs of stress in the fish. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. In my opinion there's nothing better.

Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast. Have them on subscribe and save now. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"This jar is big mind you."

If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20.

"The hotter, the faster."

The siphon works well and does what it should. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems.

The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins.

I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy.
