Dude, beneficial bacteria eats ammonia which turns it into nitrite and then nitrite which is less harmful. Then you remove nitrite through water changes making your water safe like I have done.

I actually bought a 100ml bag or purigen. No way in hell am I going to attempt to recharge it with bleach after it's spent. 9 bucks could buy me another one instead of risk killing all my fish.

Activated carbon = useless?

At first I thought carbon helped make your water clean by absorbing toxins and odor and well as leeching carbon for plants. I've had mine in my filter for a while and I read that after a few weeks,...

really? I use filtered tap. The kind you have on your sink for drinking but I don't think there's chlorine in it. Not positive though. For a MASTER kit you'd think it would have everything included.

It says to remove it once it turns brown. In order to recharge it, you need to let it sit in bleach. Uhh...that'll kill my fish.

Is this what I replace the mesh bag full of white pellets with?
