As a follow up question, is it possible to regenerate purigen that has been taken out of the filter and dried out completely?

I just like the ease of use with the 501. Plus a little bit smaller in size and price. I feel like if you want to go with the Finnex (which is a good filter BTW) I'd go all the way to the Eheim 2011....

Is it just me, or does anyone else take off those red "childproof" rings on their API test kit bottles.

Use a sponge

A sponge over your intake will also add to your biological filtration. Once it gets established of course.

Yes I meant 6dGH (6-7 total drops with the API kit)
