I never got green water again but sometimes I would notice that it had green spots.
That is an odd thing though. I have never had a tank that balanced get green water.

It comes down to preference, I love purigen and will continue to use it, if its just biological filtration, or no filtration that works for you that is great, but no remedial reading is needed by one here, it's just a different school of throught.
