Biohome to me is the best !

Ever use purigen? It does very well to get the water to the next level of clean/clear .

I think it's great ! Have some regenerated 4x's and just as good as day one .

Follow the instructions and it's safe : https://www.seachem.com/purigen.php


Also the "MSDS" : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/iu6wapszkkos ... 151230.pdf

I use a very little on some neighbors tank's along with a UV sterilizer that have big problems // result are amazing !

When I start I ask them for two white coffee cups. Fill one with there tank water and the other with tap water. There water is nasty color from the tank.

A week after I teach them a better way to maintenance there tank // same two white coffee cups /// fill with tank water and tap water again. Both still super crystal clear and clean ! I can only teach them , then it's up to them to just do it ! A few offer me money to do all there maintenance but I'm old and rather offer information than start a business. It's up to them to maintain their system once taught.

Couple of tips for Purigen... buy the one that comes pre-bagged and buy an extra one. This way you can rotate them between filter cleanings. The one that is cleaned and not used I bag it in some water and leave it in the fridge.
