"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.

"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.

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.

"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.

The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason.

"The fish like them fine."

If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you.

I like API products and this is no different. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them.
