"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.

"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!

"This why i rated 4 stars."

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.

"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.

"I have a 2."

I have several similar products this one is my favorite. I don't think the review about not replacing the filters is correct. 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 used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Be sure to unplug the filter before you do the change. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

"Works like a charm."

Our water in this town is really disgusting. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. This piping and some electrical tape made it quiet again. They arrived quickly and as promised. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.

"I like it."

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! Easy maintenance of tank filtration once tank is fully cycled over a few months. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. I like to sit eye level with the tank substrate to see exactly what I am cleaning. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. Its quite hard to push it on to the air pump.

I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. This will retain much of the bacteria needed. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

"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.

"This does the job well."

Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. If you're serious about fish keeping, always quarantine and always use Stress Coat! I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful.

"I personally love it."

I don't have to work a hard as I did before just to clean my tank. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years.

"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.

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.

"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.

"But does an amazing job."

4-5 squirts in a sink of water, soak my suit 10 min, wring out and hang to dry. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. But intjink it has alot more to do with the pump rather than the tube. Didn't use this for a fishtank or to pump liquids through it. These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly.

"5 ga beta fish bowl."

Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. Okay, I don't own an aquarium- probably never will. I do not use this as a product to treat my tap water. This will retain much of the bacteria needed. I used to use AmQuel years ago and then spent years out of the aquarium hobby.

Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. I can't find them any where's else.

"Mini pumps."

A few names we've had were Carlos, Phobe, Feesh, and Chaz. They tend to hang up on the edge of the tank. Overall, these are easy to use filters& seem to do a good job. We've got 2 in ours even though the package says to only use one. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. Excellent product, you simply can't beat the price and shipping was bullet fast.
