Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® API Replacement Filter Cartridge for Tap Water Filter Information




Besides its fish, an aquarium's most important component is its water. Although colorless and odorless, aquarium water heavily impacts the overall health of your fish and your whole system. Dirty water not only makes the aquarium a murky and hassle-filled experience for your fish it also might foster the growth of harmful bacteria, fungi, and other harmful microorganisms.

Even if the water is clear, it might still pose serious health effects on your fish's if the water you're using comes from your faucet. Regular municipal water has chlorine and other chemical additives. While this water kills off bad bacteria, they also knock out good bacteria which your aquarium might need for a natural nitrogen cycle (your fish eat food, they excrete nitrites, good bacteria turn toxic nitrites into nitrates, your plants then eat up the nitrates). This might result in an ecological imbalance for your system. Another problem with using tap water is the high amount of dissolved calcium and minerals in this type of water.

Untreated, this "hard" water creates crusts in your tubing, pumps, and other parts where the water condenses and leaves only a mineral residue. Hardwater residue builds up quickly and is a hassle to remove. To prevent this problem use a Replacement Filter Cartridge for Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Tap Water Filter from Pet Store. This filter connects to your faucet and deionizes tap water. Use this water to prevent calcium and mineral build up in your aquarium.

Ready-to-use replacement cartridge for the Tap Water Filter. Easily connects to Tap Water Filter to continue making perfect deionized aquarium water.

Comments: API's tal water filter works very well to filter the chemicals out of normal tap water. If you are on a tight budget, pick one up. The only downfall for me is that the water where I am is crap and so I am only able to get about 40 gallons of filtered water before it's time to replace the filter cartridge. The replacement cartridges are pretty expensive so I will be investing in a RO/DI system soon.

Comments: This filter system really takes all the junk out of my water my tank has been very stable with very minimal fish loss since we started using this method of filtering our awful tap water. The only downside is maybe the cost of replacement filters but if you love your fish its well worth the cost.

Comments: this filter for me is the best on the market. no wasted water, very easy to use, just takes a little effort which a lot of people dont have these days. I DO 25% weekly water changes on my 75 gallon aquarium, which keeps the water very clean along with my 2 eheim 2217 canister filters. I can get up to 100 gallons out of one filter, and i live in nj. We have the worst water, out of the tap i have cloromines ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. This filter takes all this crap out of the water and makes it safe for my fish. I love this product joe h

Comments: Works like a dream. It is so much easier than setting up a larger in-line filtration unit. I use it to remove impurities from my water before I mix up salt for my water changes in my 80g reef tank. Since I removes everything from the water I know what and how much over all minerals and other elements are in the finished product since added them. Great for controlling quality.
