So it's been a month since I got my Fluval 206 and the only non-fluval media I threw into the canister was Purigen.

Looking to replace that Carbon media since I don't think it would be wise to have it with excel dose.

What's the best replacement for this media? I have a 2nd purigen bag sitting around somewhere; maybe I could have two purigen bags in my canister.

Was thinking of replacing it with Seachem Matrix, any issues with this?

I would replace it with matrix and save the other bag of purigen for when the current bag needs replaced. Also just an FYI I have heard matrix is just pumice stone, which you can get cheaper from a lawn and garden or hydroponics store.

+1 to Nexgen's recommendation.

It depends what type of media you need more, whether it's Purigen's features or if you would like more biological filtration, then go with Matrix.

No real issues with either.
