I ended up throwing the Purigen into a Ziploc bag and left it to sit for a few weeks, damp in its bag. Then against my better judgement I placed it back into the filter without cleaning it. I kind...

Thank for the prompt reply. Any thoughts as to whether putting the ball valve on the output causes the filter to pressurized its container? I'm hoping it won't blow up.
And can you possibly...

Just to keep the record straight...I only lost one fish and he was on death's door anyway. I also don't know if he just happened to die, or if he was grabbed by my crab while swimming by.

Tomorrow, I'm going to stand the bag of
Purigen upright on top of the filter pad so that only a little bit of the bag will be in the flow. I'll keep an eye open to see what if anything happens.

Is it possible that the extra large amount of Purigen, in comparison to tank capacity, could have pulled out so many organics in such a quick time frame causing an issue?

Purigen mistake!

Picked up a 100ml bag of Purigen. Since it came in a bag, and there is no smaller size, I rinsed it as per the instructions and then placed it upon the filter pad in my 3 gallon tank's filter.
