Purigen is better at absorbing nitrates and selenium but does absorb ammonia and some phosphates, so I would use the pads as well. I tumble purigen, carbon and GFO
Purigen controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise release these harmful compounds. As per their ad.
