Clearing the Water

API offers reliable three-step filtration for tanks of all sizes with their FILSTAR XP Canister filters and wide variety of filter media. These powerful filters constantly circulate the water, trapping organic waste and odors, removing harmful ammonia and contaminants, and helping good bacteria to thrive in the tank.

Feeding your aquarium inhabitants, whether they're tropical fish, turtles or newts, is something that can be tricky without the right food. API developed a special diet for every type of fish—one that's highly palatable, which leads to less waste in the tank. And that means less ammonia to cloud the water. For your turtle friends, premium floating pellets and stick treats provide multiple vitamins for a stronger, healthier shell.

    Good but could be better

    By on

    great quick tests. But they need to have the PH go below 6.0. That is the lowest you can test at and i feel i need to know if it's lower or just at exactly 6.

    So much easier

    By on

    These are much easier for just a quick reading. I still use the master test kit about once a month or so because it is somewhat more accurate but these strips have been sufficient for weekly testing.

    no... don't be me ... buy the real thing

    By on

    just no... I dipped it and waited...and nothing the colors stayed the same... either I have some freaky always 0 water in my tank or these things don't work... PetSmart, when i went in with some of my tank water(free water testing), said it was clean and good to go but I had 8ph water, so a quick water change and things should be okay... the silly sticks said I had a perfect 6ph ... I ended up getting the master test just because of this... don't be me... get the real thing...
