I have mine in a media tray in the back compartment of my biocube. The media has to come into constant contact with the water and good flow.

It works like carbon in a way, removing impurities from the water and the chemi pure elite is supposed to keep phosphates down.

I wouldnt mix the chemi pure from the freshwater tank over, just pick up a new container, it's like $14

In my cube I have the chemipure and purigen in the first chamber that contacts water, then it goes to my fuge area with chaeto.

I'm not too totally familiar with how the nano cube is setup in the back....

This is theonly media tray mod i've seen

It says you can put macro algae in one of the compartments though....
