Seachem 116016506 First Impressions

I totally recommend this.

I highly recommend the product and seller without hesitation. From their own colon or a hole in the ground. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Another plus has been that it is scratching an itch we had for getting real fish. The tap water was coming out around 836ppm. I have done this a several times with great results. I'm glad Amazon had these small cartridges.

Seachem 116016506 Final Thoughts

They work perfectly.

Fish are aerobic organisms that are susceptible to ROS. Will be ordering multiple of them for my needs. Aquarium tubing is scarce where I live during the pandemic. If you're treating injured fins or introducing new fish, this is for you. Couldn't find this at the local pet store and it was cheaper online. I tested it again this morning and it's down to 838ppm. I recommend these above all other filter cartridges I have ever used.

Overall Score

(5437 Points)
  • 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
