Just a quick one guys ,
Soaked my Purigen for 24 hours in bleach followed by a 4 day soak in dechlorinator , as I couldn't shift the smell of bleach and It still smells like bleach , is this going to be ok ??

I did an 8day soak as I could still smell bleach. And every day just squishing the bag so the beads in the middle come to the front. After the 8 days it did smell fishy so I used it and that was 2 months ago. Reminds me I have to do it again soon

just a quick question how did you mix the prime with the water to soak? What was the ratio?

As per instruction " 2 tablespoons of ChlorGuard™, Prime®, or equivalent dechlorinator per cup of water" from seachem

I used enough dechlorinator to treat 120 litres .... And I only used 1 cup of water ,
I'm leaving it to soak again tonight in the same ratio then it's going bk in :)
