Hi Guys

I remember reading in these forums about a product that you can get at AE that leaves water crystal clear. I've had a good ol' look through past post but can't seem to find the one it was in (think it was older than July)

Does anyone know of the product I am talking about?

:lol: :lol: I just don't like seeing people using chemicals in their tank when its not needed thats all ;) and some will think its a quicker way of getting there rather than doing some actual work to prevent it, which will then cause more problem ;)

Know what you mean, LD

Just that I couldn't find hte old post about the info, and for some reason this morning its popped into my head whilat I was on AE ordering my replacement Rhinox 2000 (other one snapped in my hand yeatserdy :( )

I think it called "clarity", not 100% though, quite a few pople here used it and recommended it. Actually its not "clarity" as thats liquid based. This item was something for the filter and was fully reuseable and regenerates itself.

What was it called....

Sometimes cloudiness in the water can be due to small suspended particles and a very fine polishing pad such as JBL Symec Micro can help sort this out.

Purigen is not a chemical that is added to the water column. It is a resin that removes nitrogenous waste and various discolourants from the water column. I thought my water was crystal clear, the I started using Purigen. :D

Just for the record, I use to have problems with water clarity in my 180 low tech. When I started using Easy Life FFM (fluid filter medium) my water became very clear. Easy Life FFM has a very good CEC and is able to bind ammo and other particles.

Worth trying. I highly recommend this product and the best part is FFM is 100% natural no chemicals (probably liquid zeolite and something else).

Regards, Dusko

I have to agree, my water has never been so clear, And it's so easy to regenerate, I use 2 bags, regenerate 1 when useing the other :)
