Product description

Selectivity: purigen is the highest capacity organic filtration resin on the market. No other products can compare to its ability to clear haziness and polish water to unparalleled clarity. Unlike other products on the market which are simple ion-exchange resins, purigen is specifically designed to be an organic scavenging resin. When ion-exchange resins are filled to capacity by metals and other contaminants, purigen has barely begun to reach its potential. Purigen generally ignores simple elemental compounds, having an extreme affinity for nitrogenous organics. The primary source of nitrogenous compounds in an aquarium is waste. Fish, corals, even plants produce nitrogenous waste. Purigen removes that waste faster and more completely than anything else on the market. Capacity: purigen's possesses enhanced capacity owing to its vast surface area. All other resins on the market are purely spherical extruded beads. These beads remain smooth even under a microscope. Purigen is both spherical and macro reticular. It has microscopic pores that increase its usable surface area to many times that of a purely spherical resin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but also a warning!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 January 2016
Ok so I recently had two problems one the filters that came with my rank were hopeless so I had to upgrade to a Fluval 406 which is great by the way. I tried to use as much of the older filter media as possible but fully expected a mini cycle and an ammonia spike due to the change. For the last week I had also been plagued by slightly cloudy water more noticeable when viewing the tank lengthways but still annoying ! So in went the Fluval about three days later in that went the Purigen. Readings taken before the Purigen showed a slight ammonia spike at .25 and nitrites also high and nitrates at about 40 so basically not good! 24 hours after the Purigen went in these were at 0! The other thing as you will see is it has visibly cleared the slight cloudiness after 48 hours this is almost completely crystal clear even when the tank is viewed length way so it works! Apart from this it has also done something which I don't really know how to describe but everything just looks more vibrant it's like I went from standard definition to HD. I think cost wise it's reasonable. Especially when compared to say Chemi Pure which to treat my tank would cost close to 40 pounds with one pouch if Purigen is actually more than enough for my 300 litre tank. I am still running normal carbon as this extends the life of the Purigen and also Purigen fits easily into my Fluval 406.

Now for the caution bit. I was actually considering taking one star off for this because I don't think Seachem make this clear enough unless you do your own research which I did but many don't ! Once finding numerous threads on the internet about two serious issues I wrote to Seachem who have clarified and confirmed so this is straight from Seachem.

Issue no 1 . Many water conditioners that are used today in water changes contain a slime coat element which contains amines. This could render the Purigen useless. To be on the safe side you need to use a water conditioner which does not have this ingredient like Seachem Prime, or remove the Purigen from the filter during water changes for about 24 to 48 hours. To be clear using a water conditioner that contains amines won't create any toxicity but will reduce the effectiveness of it and also saturate it so it is not capable of being recharged.

Issue number 2. If you use a water conditioner containing amines which many do, then if you use this to regenerate your Purigen it will make it toxic and kill your fish. It is hard to know whether or not a water conditioner contains amines one that is safe is Seachem Prime. Amines are not necessarily listed on the ingredients as there are variations of this chemical. I know that the Fluval and Tetra water conditioners are both not safe to regenerate Purigen.

What happens if you try to regenerate your Purigen with one of these water conditioners is a chemical reaction which will trigger highly toxic chloramine in your tank. As I do not intend to reuse or regenerate my Pugin this is not a problem for me but I have switched to using a different water conditioner just to be on the safe side. I really do think that Seachem should make this clear to people purchasing this product as the consequences could be catastrophic.

I will continue to use this product as it seems to really help with water clarity and chemistry but I will be purchasing a new bag when this one runs out. I suggest if you do want to use this product switch to Seachems water conditions also either Prime or Safe to get the most out of it.
