"My betta lives in this 2."

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Have them on subscribe and save now. In terms of taking water out, it's great. I just change them when they get clogged. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank.

Pro-Tec PC1F Final Thoughts

"Now we are in December."

They arrived quickly and as promised. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. I will purchase this again when needed. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs.

"It's not heavy though."

If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. The siphon works well and does what it should. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20.

Aqueon 100165003 Final Thoughts

"So it is worth the money."

I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. It does not last or do its job after that. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold.

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.

Top Fin Final Thoughts

"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.

"This why i rated 4 stars."

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. I can't find them any where's else. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

Tetra 26316 Final Thoughts

"Came exactly as shown!"

These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I have used marine land bio-wheel pump and filters for the past 20 yrs. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer.

"Highly recommended!"

Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I just change them when they get clogged. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. The siphon works well and does what it should.

"Now we are in December."

I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. This includes check valves on both. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. We like to name our new fish every month. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it.

4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again.

"Poor thing."

I have done this a several times with great results. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

"The hotter, the faster."

Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. I even poured in extra to help with the healing.

"Plenty powerful."

Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. I like API products and this is no different. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

"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.
