In addition to putting it in my 36g bowfront that I mentioned yesterday, I’m also going to put some in my new fancy goldfish tank that I just cycled. There will definitely be plenty of organic material in that tank!

It works well in my experience. I got the 100 ml size that came in its own bag already. I haven't tried recharging yet but it will be due pretty soon.

Oh hey I guess I could have posted my 1 day with Purigen comparison pics from my newest 20 gallon tank.

Took this right before adding Purigen.

And this was taken 24 hours later.

The Purigen came today, and I put it in my bowfront and in my goldfish tank. If I notice a difference, I think it’ll be in the gf tank. It’s clear, but it could be clearer.

I use (1) 100g bag in my 20 gallon and (2) 100g bags in my 75 gallon.

I have recharged them a few times without any issues.

It's actually time to recharge them next time I service my filters.

Skavatar, what type of plants are those?

i had some hornwort/coontail floating in there, but my goldfish have been eating up all the leaves.
