Seachem 116016506 First Impressions

My favorite brand!

It's quick and easy and can give you an alert if something may be going on. I've already lost one test tube cap, most likely due to my cats playing with them. I'm still not sure about the chlorine site. I set up a bunch of 20 gallon tanks for fry and stuff. It shows it could be between 1-20 but the liquid shows 0. I was having trouble keeping my fish tank water looking good. Comes with a lot of test strips, that are extremely easy to use and read.

Seachem 116016506 Final Thoughts

Especially for the price!

I wouldn't call this a master kit but a great start. The stripa are easy to use, clear instructions and I gor results in seconds. It helps get you in the ballpark with your water perimeters. The strips are able to monitor pH, nitrate, nitrite, water hardness. But it is accurate and convenient as is. No one brand is going to guarantee against this.

  • Seachem 116016506 Features & Specs
  • FILTRATION: Purigen ranges in color from almost white (cream) to light yellow. Seachem Purigen is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water.
  • SELECTIVITY: Seachem Purigen is an organic filtration resin that works hard to remove nitrogenous compounds and waste produced by fish, corals, and even plants, making your water crystal clear.
  • CAPACITY: Being both spherical and macroreticular, Seachem Purigen has microscopic pores that increase its usable surface area to many times that of a purely spherical resin.
  • REGENERATION: Once Seachem’s Purigen is exhausted, it can be regenerated with a solution of bleach and water. The bleach will literally “burn off” the organics that have been removed from the tank.
  • SAFETY: Some slime coat products may permanently foul Purigen and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odor of bleach/chlorine is detectable. In case of doubt, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.
  • Age Range Description: All Stages
  • Manufacture: Seachem Laboratories, Inc.
  • Product Dimensions: 4.7 x 3 x 1.4 inches; 1.41 Ounces
