"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!

Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. I will purchase this again when needed. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. I checked the pH this morning and it was just slightly acidic at 6.

"And he is a betta."

Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. No observable signs of stress in the fish. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. 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. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank.

3. Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - For Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 250ml

User Ratings: 85 2

Seachem 116012607 First Impressions

"Buy another."

My tank is always clean now and the fish are growing and happy! I really do need 1 that flows on its own. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully.

  • Seachem Stability Fish Tank Stabilizer - For Freshwater and Marine Aquariums 250ml
  • TANK STABILIZATION: Seachem Stability will rapidly and safely establish the aquarium biofilter in freshwater and marine systems, thereby preventing the #1 cause of fish death: "new tank syndrome".
  • TREATMENT: Stability is formulated specifically for the aquarium and contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic, and facultative bacteria which facilitate the breakdown of waste organics, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
  • BACTERIA GROWTH: The necessary conditions for the growth of Stability's bacterial strains encompass a very broad range. When other bacteria begin to die off (usually from high organic loads caused by the unknown death of an organism), Stability simply becomes more effective.
  • USE: Shake Seachem Stability well before use and turn off UV/ozone filter. Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 40 L (10 US gallons) on the first day with a new aquarium. Then use 1 capful for each 80 L (20 US gallons) daily for 7 days. Fish and other aquatic species may be introduced at any time as long as the dosage is maintained for 7 days.
  • SAFE: The bacteria employed by Stability are non-sulfur fixing and will not produce toxic hydrogen sulfide. Stability is completely harmless to all aquatic organisms as well as aquatic plants, thus there is no danger of overuse.

"Also, have some patience."

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. Our water in this town is really disgusting. Before I did anything with my tank Saturday the TDS reading was in the hight 900's. I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon.

"Seems to be helping."

Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. When they disinfect a repair site, they are normally only using chlorine. Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. I love all of the API products, especially their easy to use test kits. Don't claim to be an expert, but I've never heard of that.

Tetra 16448 Final Thoughts

"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.

"This is great fish food."

Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. Have them on subscribe and save now. So they fit in my Tetra filter for the fish tank. I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I can't find them any where's else. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. 5 years now and I truly believe they help keep the humidifier and water cleaner.

"Mostly for betta's."

A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though! If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product.

"The fish like them fine."

They surely don't last in tank very long. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean.

"Buy another."

This will retain much of the bacteria needed. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. 4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I will purchase this again when needed. 5 gallon Top Fin Enchant Aquarium that I got from PetSmart. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well.

"Just keep trying."

The filters are expensive to replace and only so-so quality. I bought this to attach to my Tetra whisper 20. I must've measured correctly because it fits great! It's far superior to manually scooping out the water from the fish tank. They arrived quickly and as promised. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used.
