    Is there any meaningful difference between seachem Purigen and seachem Hypersorb? The Amazon descriptions are somewhat lacking. Thanks.

    I added 4 F Julli cory and 2 rasporas to my 46 gallon and it caused it to get a little cloudy. I was just curious about the two products. I have both in a canister filter

    I tryed the hypersorb to clear my water that had a slight cloudy haze to it. It didn't clear the water but it is a good product instead of carbon. Make sure you buy the seachem bag for it.

    It sounds like a bacteria bloom from the new additions. What colour is the cloudyness? If it is white, then it is likely bacterial, and will go away when the tank re-cycles. What are your ammonia/nitrite/nitrate readings?

    My tanks have a very light white haze. I think you're right about it being a bacteria bloom. The 46 g has some new residents, and the 29 just had a canister filter put on it. I'll wait it out.

    Keep an eye on ammonia/nitrites.

    If the tank(s) is/are cycling, or going through a mini cycle, daily doses of Prime may be in order while the colony re-establishes.
