Wanting to order some Purigen.......does anyone have a link to a solid alternative bag to "The Bag"?

I'm interested in Purigen to help reduce tannins from driftwood. Its a non planted tank.

Just looking for a quality product....but trying to save a few bucks too.

To be honest. you are almost better off buying the 100ml pre-bagged version. I tried Boyd's Chemi-Bags and it ripped after the second recharge. "The Bag" holds 250ml of Purigen but by time you factor that in it is easier to just buy the 100ml.

Kensfish has it for $7.49. They also have best prices on Primer, etc so easy to find a way to hit $50 for free shipping.

You can find an aquarium safe mesh bag on Amazon or Ebay pretty easily.
Yeah.....but I've read that the Purigen is bag for leaking out. Perhaps they made it so fine as to "persuade" you into buying theirs

Any particular bags? Like mentioned, Chemi-Bags failed on me which for Purigen can be tragic as far as cleanup, not as big a deal for bio-media.

I have cheap bags found on amazon, ultra fine. There are a few pieces that still come through the mesh, but since I don't mess with it often, a few pieces here and there don't bother me. I'm going to try the pantyhose idea next time I'm messing with them. (I don't leave them in my filters since all my tanks are planted.)
