Python 12PC First Impressions

"Either way!"

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. I have never had one tear or fall apart under any circumstances. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank.

Python 12PC Final Thoughts

"After searching online."

No idea how well it's cleaning, but they are hella cute. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs.

Aqueon 100533032 First Impressions

"I LOVE these little fish."

If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. I just change them when they get clogged. In my opinion there's nothing better. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool.

Aqueon 100533032 Final Thoughts

"Strong fish food smell."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. No observable signs of stress in the fish. They arrived quickly and as promised.

"Now we are in December."

Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! So, lots of snipping and fitting on various stems. Our water in this town is really disgusting. This water conditioner is a life saver! Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

"Highly recommended!"

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.

"Kind of dirty."

This water conditioner is a life saver! We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again.

The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. This is my go to water conditioner and stressed fish treatment. This includes check valves on both.

"Amazon wins again."

You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. The siphon works well and does what it should. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly.

"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.

"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 promise you it fits."

In my opinion there's nothing better. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I have done this a several times with great results. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle.

"5 ga beta fish bowl."

5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! We like to name our new fish every month. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.

"I buy the large 7."

I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. I can't find them any where's else. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. I hope you found this review helpful!
