COMPLETE WITH ITS OWN MEDIA BAG
Purigen™ is a premium synthetic adsorbent that is unlike any other filtration product. It is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water at a rate and capacity that exceeds all others by over 500%. Purigen™ controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise release these harmful compounds. Purigen’s™ impact on trace elements is minimal. It significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. Purigen™ darkens progressively as it exhausts, and is easily renewed by treating with bleach. Purigen™ is designed for both marine and freshwater use. DIRECTIONS: Rinse before use. Use in a fine mesh filter bag. Each 1 L treats up to 4,000 L (1,000 gallons*) for up to six months. Exhaustion is indicated by a pronounced discoloration of the beads to dark brown or black.

  It's the famous Purigen. We all need it. Comes inside a handy mesh bag ready to place in filter. (No description states this.)

  Love this stuff. I drop one in a RSM 130d and they last about 6-8 weeks and mop up any ammonia/nitrite and nitrate. - easy to use, have reduced my algae in the tank.

  Fast delivery as always. This product does seem to make a difference to water clarity. I put a couple of bags in the chemical canister on my Fluval G3 and regenerate them every couple of months.

  Quick delivery as always. I put a couple of these in the chemical filter of my Fluval G3 and they seem to keep the water clear. I change them every 4-6 weeks and use bleach to regenerate.They certainly get brown and seem to absorb the organics in the water that make it cloudy. Tank water does seem to stay clearer for longer.

  I have been using Purigen for a long while. Never had any issues with it and I have to say I have also never tried to "refresh" it for reuse. I tend to run a fluidised phosphate remover along side it to get those levels really low.

  Handily it comes in a bag as I suspect a bag fine enough to keep this in would be costly. Seems to be great at absorbing nitrates I my nano reef.

  for those interested the 100ml does come in a mesh bag already you dont need to buy one, its simply ready to use right away, ill review the results when its had chance to work, but theres a guy lower down that says it dosent come in a bag and it does.

  just received this product today. it comes in just a box and a big mesh bag, not in a jar, as indicated. this amount will treat 100 US gallons, which is as large as my fish pond (2 mtr square x 1 mtr deep) in the garden!! no home fish tank is that large so you will have to find something else to put the tiny bits of grit in. be warned, they are as fine as caster sugar! i found a gravel cleaner mesh bag was just the job, but had to sew up the opening, after filling, it then fitted nicely inside my filter. you only need a very tiny amount... so i wonder why the company that makes the stuff does not just pack it into very small (postage stamp size) mesh bags? there would be about a dozen in this size pack, and all the stress of having to repack it yourself would be taken away! bigger tanks could obviously just add a few more bags. now im left with having to store this product in a suitable airtight container of my own. its a hassle and a right \\'mission\\' to add this to your fishtank.... i have yet to see what results it gives. lets hope its worth it! (many web reviewers say it wonderful!)

  Thought i might try purigen as an experiment, i thought my water was clear, 24 hours after adding 100ml to my filter the water is invisible! only the returns from the filter show that there is water in the tank 100 gal (450lt). the fish appear to float in nothing.

  Probably the best single product available for the aquarium today. After two weeks trying unsuccesfully to remove the horrible bogwood whiskey colour from my tank using carbon, I tried Purigen and it was crystal clear OVERNIGHT! absolutlely amazing.

  fantastic product! I really like the look you get from having natural bogwood but unlike others i dont like the tint it leaves the water with the leaching of tannins. This solved it within a week, i had used bogwood for over a year and the water changes never seemed to keep the water any clearer. On addition this fantastic filter media was spent within a week going a dark brown colour and cleaning the water to a pristine shine but it doesnt end there! oh no, it doesnt take a genius to follow the instructions to recharge the pack and away it went again and has done for around a month now and is coming to a point where a good clean might be needed. Lasts and lasts to give spectacular results makes it a must. I managed to get the bag to fit neatly into my fluval 4Plus with no problems so you dont even need an external unit to get the benefits.
