Zoo Med 976180 First Impressions

"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!

EcoSphere Small Pod with Base First Impressions

"I am new to the hobby."

Sure enough they are back to their healthy coloration and didn't end up dying on me. I change my filters every 2 weeks with a water change and my fish have lasted years. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! I have done this a several times with great results. They arrived quickly and as promised. It only requires 3 drops per gallon you add to your tank. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs.

EcoSphere Small Pod with Base Final Thoughts

"A Very quiet pump!"

In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. Fish possess an antioxidant defense system to reduce the negative effects of ROS. In terms of taking water out, it's great. I just change them when they get clogged. Lastly, the hand pump primes very quickly and the water flow is wonderful. I've been using these filters in my aquarium for years. It is much safer to simply to add 3 drops per gallon.

"Added the heater to my 1."

Super easy to use, no smell and safe. If you have a freshwater fish tank, I highly recommend this product. I will purchase this again when needed. I was impressed at the suction and speed of this little tool. Got here on time, perfect packaging, rinsed easy and fit in my filters perfectly! Put in last night and my water is crystal clear. Then I can walk away and come and move it to the next pocket or re-position it.

API 820D Final Thoughts

"Win-win, love it!"

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. I used one gallon of reverse osmosis and the rest tap. Great price for filters that are ready to go, with no assembly required. These filters get the job done, but do plug up quickly when my water is that gross. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. 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!

"Plenty powerful."

Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium. Great price and will for sure be ordering these again. I like API products and this is no different. The auction begins with just a few squeezes even my young nephew could do it. Water stays nice and clear, minus the odd algae bloom. If placed the other way, the carbon can be pushed out into the aquarium.

Tetra 29259 Final Thoughts

"Mostly for betta's."

Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used. Boiling water does more to kill mold and bacteria, so save your money. I decant this to a small 5 oz squeeze bottle and leave the rest in the fridge. No observable signs of stress in the fish. This tool has made maintenance so much more easy and efficient. This will retain much of the bacteria needed.

Instant Ocean HF-1 First Impressions

"But far as sharp edges!"

It DOES fit, you just have to spend a few minutes getting it on. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. This allows the conditioner time for its anti-heavy metal ingredients to work fully. I swim 5x week and usually my suits last about 2 months. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. You just give it some squeezes, and the outpouring begins and doesn't take forever. Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now.

"Only time will tell."

The one with the fish keeps the tank clean. Works great to keep the purification process going in the humidifier. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. Our water in this town is really disgusting. Still, mine came in 1 piece and in working order so I'm satisfied. I haven't tried looking for alternative brands. I always deep clean my humidifier every week-week and half regardless.

As dirty as the larger fish are theses cartridges keep mytanls crystal clean. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm.

"I have a 3."

I bought this airline tubing to work with my air pump. I have already repurchased and given a few to other people as well. However if you want a stress coat, this is perfect. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. Exactly the same item I purchased from a local store for alot more money! This includes check valves on both. He's still cute and my son loves him but I was surprised by the color.

"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.

"They work perfectly."

API Stress Coat is a phenomenal product. This will retain much of the bacteria needed. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason. Thanks to the Amazon reviewer who mentioned this! If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Washed with hot water several times to get rid of it. I really do need 1 that flows on its own.

"No need to rinse."

Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. The ridges interfere with moving the hose around in the tank. In the last two months I have seen this product work its gold. If it it quickly slip on then it wouldn't be as secure and tight as it needs to be. Then I went ahead and bought a huge pack of them. Then put hose in your bucket and viola, it will draw water! More doesn't hurt anything, but it's just wasted.

Always needing to wash it out, with only 1 small catfish in the tank right now. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I had the filters in a few days ordering from Amazon. Now our fish have grown and we've added live plants. I use water from the tank, but you can use treated water. Yes I know, they aren't supposed to live that long and no I can't prove it. Make sure you stay on top of replacing your fish every month though!
