"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.

"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.

"No leaking air at all."

The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. In the morning I awoke with my fish at the bottom barely able to move. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. The chloramines contain a small amount of ammonia.

  • Seachem Flourish Excel Bioavailable Carbon
  • CARBON PRODUCTION: All plants require a source of carbon, and Flourish Excel is a great and convenient source of bioavailable organic carbon.
  • IRON PRODUCTION: Flourish Excel also possesses iron reducing properties, thus promoting the ferrous state of iron (Fe+2), which is more easily utilized by plants than ferric iron (Fe+3).
  • PHOTOSYNTHESIS: Plants must produce longer chain carbon compounds (photosynthetic intermediates). By dosing with Flourish Excel you bypass the involvement of chain carbon compounds, and introduce the already finished, structurally similar compounds.
  • TREATMENT: On initial use or after a major (> 40%) water change, use 1 capful of Flourish Excel (5 mL) for every 40 L (10 US gallons). Thereafter, use 1 capful for every 200 L (50 US gallons) daily or every other day. For smaller dosing please note that each cap thread is approximately 1 mL.
  • SAFETY: Flourish Excel is completely safe for fish, however if you have Anacharis in an aquarium in which you are dosing Flourish Excel, then it is recommended to use it every other day rather than daily.

"And works."

In terms of taking water out, it's great. It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. I am able to use each cartridge for about 5 weeks, before it needs to be replaced. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Frequently changing the filter messes with the aquarium nitrogen cycle. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I had a parasite problem, and had to heal my fishes scales and fins. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's.

"They work perfectly."

I just change them when they get clogged. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. We use it when we clean& change out water. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully.

"But far as sharp edges!"

However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

"Seems to be helping."

5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6. Initially this was used as a sample packet came with our aquarium.

These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank.

"I have a 2."

I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. No observable signs of stress in the fish. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one.

I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

In my opinion there's nothing better. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! It does not last or do its job after that. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. I have used marine land bio-wheel pump and filters for the past 20 yrs.

"This does the job well."

From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required.
