If you are looking for excellent product on par with, or better than Carbon,, which CAN be recharged,,I would were it me,,consider product such as Purigen.
Not a bad idea 1077, however the synthetic resin in Seachem's Purigen only adsorbs dissolved organics. Activated carbon adsorbs many more impurities.
I have used Purigen in the past and like the resulting crystal clear water. However, I have come around to the notion that many beneficial bacteria rely on dissolved organics as their primary food source. Removing it may disrupt the 'concert' otherwise played out by the beneficial bacterial 'orchestra'.
