API BioChemBeads = similar to Purigen

Does anyone have any experience using these bio beads. Got this from my friend's grandfather's aquarium kit.

API manufactured it, but now it's discontinued product & there's NO info at all on this stuff.



  • Wondering if this can be used/recharged like purigen?

Looks to me like it's a type of biomedia like Matrix, Ehfi-whatever and such which would mean they're not an adsorptive media like Purigen.

I see nothing on the package that indicates it's anything like Purigen. Looks like plain ol bio media to me, not unlike Seachem Matrix.
