Product Description

Purge 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%. Purge controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise release these harmful compounds. Purge's impact on trace elements is minimal. It significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. Purge darkens progressively as it exhausts, and is easily renewed by treating with bleach. Purge is designed for both marine and freshwater use.

This stuff is amazing. Every tank should have some. If I had a recommendation or request it would be to include the 'bag' with your purchase of the purigen. Makes sense to me as I'm pretty sure it becomes a necessity. But this stuff really does wonders for the aquarium water. We keep a bag of it in all of our sumps. Thanks!

I use this on all of my tanks. Fresh and salt. I can't say for 100% certainty how well it works but I know I dont typically have problems with my water. I change it when it turns brown. I don't revive it.

Purigen is a unique type of filter media. It is different than any other media that I have used.

It is reusable and it works very well!

Be careful - You will need to purchase an appropriate filter media mesh bag. Purigen is comprised of very tiny pellets that can fall out of a standard sized mesh bag. You should purchase a mesh filter bag that has a pore size small enough to contain the Purigen pellets properly.

excellent stuff, using about 500ml in a 200 gallon tank that i am using for fish photography, this product change my workflow. With naked eye that water is crystal clear, with high power strobe light the impurities are kept very low, my workflow changed. If you want excellent quality images with flashes go for it.

this is one of the few filter media i've found to actually suck up tannins (from driftwood) out of the water. It's gradual and takes time, but water test results speak for themselves. Very fine, and must use special filter bag.

Purigen is amazing. We have red ear slider turtles that create quite a messy tank. They are in a 125 gallon tank and 1 mesh bag of purigen in the filter clears the water to an amazing crystal clear. It can be regenerated & works over & over again! It is incredible how clear the water gets using Purigen. For fish tanks and less messy tanks (turtles being among the messiest) this will make for crystal clear water for months! Highly recommend!

I found this product to do all it says. Nitrites, down, down down, water crystal clear. The great part, you do not throw it away. Drop it into 50-50 bleach, H2O solution, 24 hours later, rinse in chlorine free water, and its ready to go like brand new, another 6 months of use, over, and over.

This is the first product out of many I have tried to really keep the aquarium absolutely crystal clear. This also reduces the number of water changes I was doing. You do have to change filter every two weeks though and replenish the purigen which is reusable.
