Chemi pure elite, make any difference?

I believe that's the product, I'm just thinking about my tank and what not, while at work. Does this stuff make that big of a difference?

Didn't do much for me. I used it in my 65g, in a fluval fx5. It didn't do anything to the parameters or keep the water any cleaner then usual. I have swore off every kind of media besides foam filter pads. That's all you need is foam pads and some type of bio filtration.

I agree^^^^

I've used it and didn't notice a difference either.

Yeah for a reef tank I use it but I'll be honest I don't see a difference there either. I run that and purigen in my media rack (reef tank)

If I run nothing other then poly fill, I don't see a difference. I'm thinking of saving my money for a vacation rather then more bags of purigen and cases of chemi pure elite. Besides poly fill is much much cheaper

Oh thanks for clearing that up. From a couple reviews I read, people swear by it. Say their water looks like it came from a babbling brook in mt. Fiji basically. Cool, I'll just save my monies, put it towards that LSD

Hey ... if LSD floats your boat who are we to argue ... just don't let the Feds read this thread.

As for Poly-fill, I get mine at Michaels Arts and Crafts. 20oz bag for about $5 at most and it'll last you months even if it's being used on 2-3 different filters.
K-mart, Walmart, Target ... they all carry it ... just make sure it's 100% Poly-fill. NO fire retardants, perfumes, anti mold additives etc.

I buy mine at Walmart in the craft section, it's cheap and comes in huge rolls for under $20.00. This last me around 2-3 months, but keep in mind I have nearly 15 tanks running.
