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.

      Oh no it’s magnetic... could be a problem with my magnet cleaner. Although, depending on the attraction I could just use the mag cleaner for the top 3/4 of the tank and get a scraper or something for the bottom.

      Ooh I just found a sand that looks almost perfect, it even comes in the right package size for my tank. https://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/products/pisces-iron-sand It’s another Pisces & Oliver Knott creation; AquaIron. Says it doesn’t alter the KH/GH/pH/TDS etc. Only problem is it says it should not be added to established tanks due to... cloudiness?? What do u think about this one?  Thanks again for your guys’ help!

      I was hoping it wasn't the pisces brand. Oh well, cross that off my recommended list. Are you willing to try AquaLava by Oliver Knott? I know it's not cheap.   Maybe. Got a link or something to where you would buy this? Without going into a whole Geology session, it depends on what the composition of the volcanic sand was.  We get a lot of our Scoria from NZ, that is generally inert.      If you want to go with sand, generally, your choice is Bunnings play sand. However, since sand can be sourced from any quarry anywhere in Australia, there is no guarantee it is inert. You can only buy it and then test for changes to the water parameter.

      Hey guys, just found an add for this website showcasing a cool-lookin native algae eating shrimp. https://algaeeatingshrimp.com.au/products/australian-algae-eating-shrimp Anyone heard of these before or own any? My interest was peaked by the claim that they eat hair-type algae, as I have some on my crypts and lace fern that I cannot remove. And for a price of $4 ea, and super easy parameters, they sound pretty doable!  Tell me more oh great SKFians! 😁 (or feel free to point me towards an already existing page) post-note: have you/do you keep these grubs? Seems like your sort of thing.

      Agreed! I had a tank with this setup but it came with the sponge behind the slits. Try not to get too fine sponge as that will restrict the flow and block too quickly. You will need to keep clearing the sponge every now and again as well! Simon
