Yeah I've been is some serious arguments on another forum with people who swear by Macropore but they haven't ever used Purigen' date=' It's like saying tomatoes taste like crap without ever eating one, lol. It was definitely a silly argument to be in, I just gave up in the end. :dejection: Don't get me wrong, Macropore is a good product but nowhere near as good as Purigen. :encouragement:[/quote']

What the hell are you talking about squiggle...? Macropore is heaps better, purigen ......gotcha! Only joking dude!

I just bought "the bag" for my purigen... dam those things are expensive!!!

But otherwise, so far, the purigen gets the thumbs up from me!

Also, good to hear you can't overdose as I just put a whole load of the stuff in my 30l tank lol:)

I was told that fine stockings are good as a bag might be worth a try I always make my own carbon bags and they work great- stockings and a rubber band or if I'm really industrious sew it closed

Better off buying the purigen bags

As bleach will destroy most material when soaked for along time

In case you didn't know Ineke, the 100ml pack comes in a bag :victorious: & yes I had a brand new one lying around at home still in the pack, I actually have two :dejection:

Yes but the 250ml doesn't come in a bag as i learnt :P

Before i bought "the bag" i used a filter sock which appears to be made out of the same stuff as the bag. Just chopped it off the plastic bit and wrapped it up with an elastic band...

I was going to split the purigen up and use it in several tanks as they all have small amounts of water in them. So I will try the 100 ml first and if it works will buy a larger amount for my other tanks -it would work out quite expensive if I had to buy lots of bags. Can cut the stocking open and put the recharged purigen into a new one if it is affected by the bleach. A bit of extra work but it should work.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
