Can I use Purigen with a sponge filter?
Get rid of the sponge filter and use the Azoo nano HOB. It’s the same thing as the Red Sea deco art nano filter (now discontinued). I use this on a 2.5 gallon and it works great, absolutely tiny and the water flow is adjustable. Besides you can buy yourself a purigen packet, cut it to size, then staple it shut.
Where do I put Purigen in my filter?
Purigen is such a filter medium that can be used in combination with every kind of filter. To get the best out of it, it should be placed in an area where the water moves in strong currents. So that it should be the last filter the water passes through before falling back into the tank.

Does Purigen have to be in filter?
Rinse before use. Use in a fine mesh (180 micron or less) filter bag such as Seachem’s The Bag™. For best results, Purigen® should be placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it. It may be used in a canister filter, media chamber, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter.
Does Purigen help with algae?
What types of algae, specifically, are you referring to that are caused by high organics? Purigen absorbs biological organic compounds before they are converted to ammonia…so if you are having ammonia spikes resulting in green water, purigen will help.
How long does Purigen take to clear water?
I put the bag of Purigen from my 5 gallon tank into my 10 gallon tank and bam! It seemed like within only 10 or 15 minutes the fish started getting livelier. The next morning, the 10 gallon tank was crystal clear. In fact it looks as good as the first day I filled it with water if not better.
Does Purigen lower pH?
Purigen® does not release any buffering agents or acids into the water, nor is it capable of impacting the mineral concentration in any way, so it will not directly impact the pH, KH, or GH of the aquarium.
Is Purigen better than carbon?
Neither between purigen and carbon can impose harm on the plants present in your tank. However, too much carbon will remove the nutrients they’ll need. Unlike purigen, these nutrients will linger so both the fishes and plants can have a healthy living environment.
Can you use Purigen and carbon together?
They can definately be used together, and also using carbon should make your Purigen last a lot longer. I use both. They do different things for the most part. If you had to choose, I would use a very good grade carbon first, and purigen second.
Can you use too much Purigen?
Purigen® will never become toxic through overuse, but there are several situations under which it is beneficial to allow some organic waste to build up in the aquarium.
What does Purigen do for aquarium?
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.
How do you recharge Purigen?
Regeneration: Purigen can also be regenerated. As it adsorbs waste products, Purigen will change color from a pale blonde to a dark brown, almost black. Once it is exhausted, it can be regenerated with a solution of bleach and water.

How do you recharge Purigen without bleach?
Fill with 1 cup [237 ml) of tap water and 4 tablespoons [59 ml] of Seachem Prime . Let that soak for 8 hours. If you are working with a larger bag, keep the ratio the same but increase the water to fully submerge the purigen. Step Six: Rinse the Purigen again under tapwater.
Does Purigen affect biological filter?
It doesn’t have an impact on biofiltration. Even if it did, the impact would be miniscule and the benefits far outweigh any drawbacks if any at all. Many of us use purigen and love it, we would not do so otherwise if it affected bio filtration.
Can I use Purigen in a planted tank?
Purigen in a planted freshwater tank

Will Purigen help with green water?
Purigen will not kill green water or absorb it.
How long does Purigen last?

Seachem’s response is consistent with what you stated. I will post their response below for other people’s reference.

Does Purigen remove nitrates?
Purigen does not directly remove nitrate to any big extent. It removes organic matter before it can break down into nitrate, however. That’s the same for a skimmer or GAC.

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.
Is Purigen safe for shrimp?
Registered. I use it on both of my tanks, one with shrimp (PFRs) and one without. No issues at all and I have crystal clear water. Helps remove tannins from driftwood (main reason I use it), but in general my water just looks clearer when used.
Does Purigen soften water?
Registered. If you’re running peat and Purigen, you should still get the water softening aspects of peat, but the Purigen will take the yellow out of the water.

How do I renew seachem?
Renew™ should be used in exactly the same manner as activated carbon. Use 250 mL for each 120–160 L (30–40 US gallons). For best results, Renew™ should be placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it. Use in a filter bag such as the Zip Bag™.
Will Purigen remove tannins?
It’ll likely take several days of adsorption by the Purigen to completely clear up the tannins. Suggest you re-charge the bag at around 2 weeks’ usage the first time around, when the beads will get very brown from picking up most of the tannin coloration.
