You can get purigen online (, evilbay, kensfish) in varying sizes. I would recommend the 1L version and then put them into pantyhose pouches. Obviously the pantyhose will need to be changed if you recharge with bleach but pantyhose costs like $.50 each pair haha. You regenerate it with bleach, and then to wash the bleach off you use lots of water and dechlorinator.

You can honestly use as MUCH as you want for a 29G tank. There's really no limit. It's all safe.

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
