If you have a "new fish keep dying" problem and you're well past the "new tank syndrome" stage, try THIS instead of just giving up.

Get the Tap Water Filter kit (note: though this review is for the replacement cartridge, you'll need to get the whole kit first if you don't already have one).

It was what saved me from quitting my new fish hobby, and I hope it does the same for you.

Though the tap water that comes out of your kitchen faucet is suitable for human consumption, it still may not be suitable for your fish EVEN AFTER PUTTING IN the Anti-Chlorine and Anti-Stress (good bacteria) conditioners.

This is something a lot of store salespeople are simply just not aware of, and cannot help you with when you ask them why the new fish they are selling you keep dying a few days after you've put them in your tank.

Even 6 months after adding a canister filter to the undergravel and Hang-On-Tank filters I already had on my 55 gal, I still had problems with new fish dying.

That's when I saw the Tap Water Filter on the shelf and read the info on the box. It sounded believeable, and I wanted to try it, but it was kind
of expensive ($79.99).

So when I saw the same thing on Amazon for half the cost, I chanced it and am now SOLD on this amazing product.

Now my fish hardly ever die, and my tank is flourishing beautifully.

Purchased the original filter canister through our local aquarium store when they made a custom aquarium for us, but they no longer carry these replacement cartridges (and they could not match this pricing either).

This system runs the tap water through activated charcoal, a filter medium, and then through resin in order to purify the water for aquarium use. It really does a great job removing the chemical from the water, and these filters get a lot of the credit for our fish having long, healthy lives.

These filters actually do too good of a job, and we add good minerals back in to the water before putting it in the tank -- we like to use a product called Equilibrium for that task (Seachem Equilibrium 600gram)

Glad that these replacement filter cartridges are still available here and our fish seem very happy about it too! If looking for a system, or a replacement cartridge for the system if you already have it, we recommend these highly.

I've used these for over 10 years. They work great, unfortunately the one i purchased was a spare for when my other one became exhausted. Right out of the box and after hooking it up was dark in color already. Totally used up already. Couldnt ask for a refund because too much time had passed. Be careful when purchasing. Don't make the same mistake I did. Be sure to check the filter and make sure it's a new one before a return is impossible.

Fantastic product. I've had this original equipment for roughly ten years and it still works perfectly because it's such a simple design. The replacement cartridges are a rip off I think, but what can you do. I think it's still cheaper than buying water ready made, and salt water tanks are an expensive hobby period.

Works very well. removes all metals and phosphate, nitrate, etc from your tap. water. The down side is that it is slow if you have to make a 5 gal bucket full every week. (about 30 mins). It also can be a little expensive- but hey- it beats having to install a full blown R/O system.

I have several salt water tanks. I use this for mixing salt water. Works great. Never a problem with water quality or unwanted algae blooms.

This filter does a great job. the only problem is that it is overpriced and does not filter much water before it is spent.
