Chemical Media

Do most of you use a chemical media in your planted tanks?
I have been using the RENA Crystal in my new XP3 but have read , on this forum, that I shouldn't use a chemical media.
Purogen? is also something I been reading about is this used as a chemical media or is it something different? thanks all

I think generally people don't use chemical media because it sucks up nutrients or other things plants need, but I think most people use Purigen to get tannins out of the water, I don't think most keep it as something that's always in their filters, only use it when they need it.
