"Amazon wins again."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. This is the only choice I know of for filters that will fit. We like to name our new fish every month. We use it when we clean& change out water. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish.

Zoo Med 976180 Final Thoughts

"No issues whatsoever."

They surely don't last in tank very long. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. Easy to use and a great price here at Amazon!

API 45E First Impressions

"He was fine in no time."

Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. I just change them when they get clogged. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

"Only time will tell."

Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. I've used it for years with great results. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. It does not last or do its job after that. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer.

"Working as expected."

I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. This water conditioner is a life saver! However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. I'm not sure what's going on with this 1. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this!

"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.

"Added the heater to my 1."

The little fish is super cute in my humidifier. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. It does not last or do its job after that. I even poured in extra to help with the healing. I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct.

"DO RECOMEND!"

I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. I have two goldfish and about 12 khuli loaches in a 20gal tank. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. They surely don't last in tank very long. As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. So my 12 pack will probably last for quite some time.

"I buy the large 7."

He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well.

"Just keep trying."

It's been three months and the water has remained clear and my fish healthy. Also some granules of activated carbon will fall out when you rinse them. I will purchase this again when needed. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Put in last night and my water is crystal clear.

"It does the job."

I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"Hope this helps!"

They arrived quickly and as promised. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6.

AQUA-TECH PL-T135-06 First Impressions

"Strong fish food smell."

He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. This includes check valves on both. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

"I LOVE these little fish."

It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. I wish the length of the section that is in the tank was about a foot longer. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. This will retain much of the bacteria needed. I have pillows under a tarp, but pockets of water still form. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product.

"I'd give them 4."

The siphon works well and does what it should. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that. I've used it for years with great results. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap.

Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean.
