That's my best guess. Though the bleach is essential in recharging the purigen. Instructions say to use bleach, and to use prime as a dechlorinator. If I hadn't added the purigen back to the tank the...

I completely understand and it's something that has confused me, and I also contacted Seachem to make sure I did everything right. Seachem only requires a 24hr soak in 1:1 Solution of Non-scented...

I did smell it before I added it back to the tank, again being cautious, and it didn't have any chemical smell. I also soaked it for a lot longer than it's supposed to be. Only thing I didn't do was...

I cannot stress the point that the tank was 100% fine before adding the recharged purigen back. I followed the instructions and went 500x beyond what was recommended for rinsing. The only thing I did...

I think somehow the prime didn't penetrate the purigen completely when it was soaking. Seachem only requires an 8hr soak in the dechlorinator and I did 24hrs just to be "safe"

Few shrimp...

Thank you everyone for your comments. It's a product I'll personally avoid despite the success others have had. I still use other seachem products with much success but Purigen was definitely...

I do the same routine every week without fail or problem. The only thing new to the routine is the Purigen which is why I'm singling it out as the killer. I don't use Co2.

Well, that is the problem because as far as I can tell (I used Prime, just a reminder) I did everything the instructions said to do + extra precautions.

I soaked the purigen in 50/50 clorox/water...

Purigen woes

Hey Everyone,

I haven't been on the forums in a while since I started my journal and such. I've just been doing my weekly maintenance and watching the tank progress. My guppies had fry, which up...

It's pretty cool you're getting such healthy growth and low tech. My elodea isn't doing so well but everything else is. Also found out I have some fry. :D

I've had a single ghost shrimp in a jar I bought. It has plants and no lighting/filtration but I put it on the window sill. Without an agitator for the water the surface creates a film ontop but...

Hah, I didn't know which one was gonna get that last guppy. They were both converging on it. Damn leaf fish are pretty creepy tho. Deceiving little things.

This one looks cool. I've seen a few arrangements I've liked so far that it's way too hard for me to decide on one. I can't wait to see which one you select.

So far my shrimp seem to do their own thing and don't really get too curious. I dropped a wafer in and only 1 investigated. I think it's because I have fish in there too. Though I have noticed now...

Catching these shrimp in my tank will be basically impossible. It offers shrimp a lot of protection and hiding which is why the guppies haven't bothered with them. Between the design of the tank and...

Is it free shipping with TPP if you order over $89, or does that exclude substrate because of weight? I got free shipping when I ordered my Fluval Edge from them.
