Premium synthetic adsorbent removes soluble and insoluble aquarium impurities. Purigen is a macro-porous, synthetic polymer that removes proteins and a broad spectrum of organics at a rate and capacity that exceeds all other chemical filter media by over 500%. Controls ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate, by removing nitrogenous organic waste materials. Seachem Purigen also significantly raises redox to improve aquarium water quality and clarity.
Exhaustion is indicated by discoloration, and it can be regenerated easily. For marine and freshwater aquariums. 100 ml treats up to 100 gallons, for up to 6 months.
DirectionsRinse before use. Use 180 micron interlocking mesh bag. 1 liter treats up to 1,000 gallons for up to six months. Exhaustion is indicated by a pronounced discoloration of the beads to dark brown or black.
RegenerationSoak Purigen in a 1:1 bleach to water solution for 24 hours in a non-metalic container in a well-ventilated area and away from children. Rinse well, and then soak for 8 hours with a solution containing 2 tablespoons of dechlorinator per cup of water. Rinse well. For freshwater use, soak for 4 hours with a solution containing 1 tablespoon of buffer per cup of water. Original color and full activity should now be restored and Purigen is ready for reuse.
Caution: Some slime coat products may permanently foul Purigen and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odor of chlorine is detectable. In case of doubt, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.
General InformationPurigen is a premium synthetic adsorbent that is unlike any other filtration product. It is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water at a rate and capacity that exceeds all others by over 500%. Purigen controls ammonia, nitrite and nitrate by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise release these harmful compounds. Purigen's impact on trace elements is minimal. It significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. Purigen darkens progressively as it exhausts, and is easily renewed by treating with bleach. Purigen is designed for both marine and freshwater use.
A nature aquarium is a truly a unique combination of both art and a living ecosystem. It captures the essence of nature using a combination of rock, wood, and live aquatic plants to create an aquascape that is then accented with fish. We all live such busy lives. We don't often pause to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us. Aquascaping allows us to capture a piece of the beauty and truly care for it an appreciate it.
At Cuboid Nature Aquarium you can build your aquascape from the ground up, plot your aquascape in our sand dojo before choosing the living elements like plants and fish that will also go into your aquarium.
It can be as simple, or as complex, as you'd like to make it and we're happy to help you every step of the way.
Owning an aquatic store has been a life long dream of mine that started when I was young with a family owned pet business. Now, almost 50 years later, here we are in Peddlers Village.
I am so happy we found this cool little shop while we were in Lahaska today. My daughter and I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful fish. The owner is very knowledgeable and personable, he takes the time to show you all the unique fish he has in his shop. Definitely a hidden gem! We will be back to visit next time we are back in town.
Cuboid Nature Aquarium is not your typical Peddler’s Village Shop and is located across from the FresCafe. This shop displays and offers various size nature aquarium tanks and the supplies to create your own aquascape with living plants, wood, rocks, and of course beautiful freshwater fish. When we visited the shop they had a wonderful selection of uniquely colored Betta fish. The owner Harvey Fell was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his shop which made our visit enjoyable. We will be back.
Awesome owner and shop!! It is so hard to find a clean, local fish shop that has healthy and unique fish, but now I have found the hidden gem. So lucky to have this store nearby. The owner, Harvey really took the time to help my boyfriend and I out. He is very passionate/ caring of what he does. Can’t wait to go back!! Thanks for helping us, Harvey!
fantastic selection of fish and plants. great hobbyist store. Harvey stocks the species that you actually want to buy. The store is beautiful. Great looking displays and very nice livestock tanks.
