Great packaging and great product, thanks!
I would love to order more shipping is way to high.
This is the second time I order the active filter sponge. The first time, I was a complete newbie to the hobby and was trying to save a blood parrot cichlid that the pet store told me I could just put into a new uncycled tank. Well, for 3 weeks I was doing everything I could to speed up the cycling process. Thankfully, I found Angels Plus and ordered the active filter. My tank cycled in two days! Thankfully because I don’t think the fish would have survived.
Now, she’s ready for a 75 gallon tank and I’ve ordered two large active sponges to speed up the cycling process. I can’t wait until the tank is ready for her, which will likely be by the end of the week. ThAnk you Angels Plus!
The pair arrived in good health and acclimated quickly. They were eating regularly within a week and even laid eggs three days after arriving. Angels+ does not disappoint!
Our catfish long outgrew his 30 gal, so when we finally got some extra money, we opened up a new 40 gal. For whatever reason, it took *forever* for the tank to cycle. No matter how many dreadful water changes I did, the ammonia and nitrites continued to rise. It was horrible. Meanwhile, hubby brought home an 8” pleco for the catfish (fyi, catfish had eaten every tank mate). Catfish couldn’t technically swallow pleco, but he did attack. So now I had to move pleco into our already full 20 gal tank. Wanting to get to 30 gal up asap, I stumbled across Fishlab’s recommendation for Anglesplus. I bought 2 sponge filters, added some gravel and plants from the 20 gal and successfully cycled the 30 gal in a day. Yes, a day! Even with the enormous pleco, the ammonia never went above .25-.50 (which Prime took care of) and I never saw a nitrite.
But because of his size, the pleco crashed my 20 gal. Again, I did a few water changes, but didn’t see real results until I bought a 3rd sponge filter from Angelsplus. Tank was completely cycled in less than a week. With 2 tanks cleared, I took a filter from the 30 gal and put it in the 40 gal. A week later, no more nitrites, but still tested positive for ammonia. Yet, catfish started to swim around happily again. Realizing that it might be ammonium registering as ammonia, I bought Seachem’s Ammonia Alert test. And yes, it did reveal that the water was perfect, despite the false positive from the drop test.
So, the breakdown? Three sponges bought. Two cycled my 30 gal tank in less than a day. One recycled an existing 20 gal tank that had crashed and one helped stabilize a 40 new tank that was in the midst of an ammonia/nitrite hellhole.
Excellent customer service. I placed each order over the weekend; they expertly packaged and sent out the filters by Monday. Each arrived by Wed. Only one sponge had a hitchhiker, but I don’t mind. I love snails.
In all, these sponges was the best investment for the tanks and my sanity.
It was easy to find the right fish and color I was looking for. They scheduled a day for shipping, and my fish arrived right on time. Healthy, looked good, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
I've never been a fan of flake foods and prefer pellets for most my species. After getting into angels and nano schoolers, flakes became easier to feed compared to pellets. These flakes are readily accepted by both the young angels and choprae danios. Also great to sink the largest flakes for my bristlenose pleco fry!
I ordered one large sponge for my 60g fancy goldfish tank. Delivered on the 14th, cycled by the 20th. Took 6 days to cycle! SIX DAYS!!! Phenomenal. Thank you!!!
I purchased the 1.5mm Hi-Color Primal extruded pellet for supplement feeding to my Odessa barbs, Pethia padamya. Well, that's how it started. Now I'm also using it to feed freshwater shrimp, various killifish and even
adding it to my red mosaic canary's diet. A small amount goes a long way. A great product I'll sure ordering again.
Thanks, Angels Plus
I was about 2 weeks into a fish in the cycle when my son spilled a whole container of flake into the tank. Scooping out as much as I could and multiple 50% water changes the Ammonia and Nitrite were through the roof. Luckily, I was able to foresee that happening and ordered one of these when it happened. I was so excited when it came in, I set it up right away. Within 3 days the Ammonia and nitrites were at 0 and Nitrates were around 20 PPM. Not to mention, these levels remained stable after adding more fish. These filters are like a cycling miracle. I cant see setting up another tank without one, truly a fortunate resource to have. Would order again.
I bought 2 of these filters to inoculate my new tank to cycle it, as well as to use as filtration. I put these in an uncycled 20 gallon tank (with a knee high hose filled with fish & shrimp food) and exactly 7 days later, the nitrogen cycle had already begun! It's just days from being cycled. I can't believe how easy this made cycling a tank. I'm also pleased with the filters themselves. I very highly recommend these filters, most especially as an easy, quick & affordable way to cycle a new tank.
After 5 months of trying to cycle an axolotl tank, I was ready to call it quits. Tried this and cycled within a week! It did give me snails, but they warn you of that. It wasn't too hard to pick them out. Would definitely buy another if I needed! I kept it in my axolotl tank for several months and am now using it to cycle a shrimp tank!
This stuff works really good . Highly recommend. Speedy shipping .
Angels plus has the best flake food and pellet food available anywhere.
