I did a ton of research online and the general consensus was that you just couldn't beat Purigen for water clarity...I think one person used the term 'uber clear' water. Yes, it is that clear. Some say that it removes ferts, Seachem says it does not. I use Seachem ferts & products and regenerate the Purigen all of the time. I am not a chemist, nor do I have a science background. I am just a woman who loves to have a house full of display tanks that have spawning fish. Obviously happy fish. Takes care of the empty nest syndrome.
My planted tanks are gorgeous and thriving. I need to get in there with a weed whacker almost weekly. Give away an incredible amount of clippings & plants to folks who would like to try planted tanks. No algae. None.... Stable tanks. Maybe it is not all Purigen, but it sure can be attributed in part to the Purigen, IMO.
I would suggest to get a test kit that measures chlorine levels when you are done regenerating / rinsing Purigen just so that you know for sure that the bleach is absolutely gone. I am a worry wart, so that is something extra that I do. Don't trust my nose to detect a minute amount of bleach.
