"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.

"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.

"This was perfect!"

You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. Super easy to use, no smell and safe. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. The picture shows an aqua color and mine is orange. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump.

"This does the job well."

Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied.

"Kind of dirty."

I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. Have them on subscribe and save now. This water conditioner is a life saver! Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer.

  • Seachem Flourish Tabs Growth Supplement - Aquatic Plant Stimulant 10 ct
  • GROWTH TREATMENT: Seachem Flourish Tabs are growth stimulating tablets for plant roots which contain essential trace elements, amino acids, and vitamins.
  • VITAMINS: Seachem Flourish Tabs are rich in iron, manganese, magnesium, calcium, potassium, inositol, choline B12, biotin, and other factors that have been determined to be beneficial to aquatic plant roots.
  • NUTRIENTS: When inserted into the gravel, Seachem Flourish Tabs provide direct, time-released fertilization to the plants’ root zone. Nutrients are slowly made available through enzymatic action of the plants’ roots on the tabs.
  • TANK USE: Insert one Flourish Tab in the gravel for every 10–15 cm (4–6 in.) radius. A standard 10 gallon aquarium requires 6 tabs. Distribute the tablets evenly throughout the gravel bed, pushing each tablet midway into the gravel bed.
  • COMPLETE MAINTENANCE: For optimal plant growth, add new Flourish Tabs to the aquarium once every three to four. Seachem Flourish Tabs will not alter pH, however, in very soft or unbuffered water, they have slightly acidic properties similar to peat moss.

"These filter cartridges."

I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry.

"I love these!"

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. If you look inside the box you'll see dust and stray granules. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank.

  • Koller Products 1.5-Gallon Fish Bowl
  • Ideal for home decor, weddings, crafting and centerpieces
  • Fill with fresh flowers, silk flowers, potpourri, glass beads and/or decorative marbles or use as a fish tank

"This is great fish food."

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium. The siphon works well and does what it should. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

"& was still intact."

If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it.

"I LOVE these little fish."

Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

"And he is a betta."

The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. It doesn't just quickly slip on, and there's a reason for that.

"Have it on low speed."

The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. They arrived quickly and as promised. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless.

"Buy another."

So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years.

"This why i rated 4 stars."

I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. It didn't kill the fish or cause any problems with the water so I stuck with it.

If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. This water conditioner is a life saver! From their own colon or a hole in the ground. Beats the heck out of those expensive suit cleaners. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean.
