Sorry to bug you guys; but what do these products do? Read the reviews online but still unsure of what purigen and chemipure remove from your tank?

If you get chemipure elite it has GFO so it helps to remove phosphates. It's kinda like carbon on steroids. LOL

I run both purigen and chemipure elite in my cube, regular chemipure in my 20g coral tank and chemipure in my 125g. It helps to clarify the water and keeps it nice and sparkling. Whats different about these and regular carbon is that you don't change them nearly as often, they say you can get 6 months out of each. i recently changed it out in my cube after about 4-5 months though to be safe.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Check online first for the best deal on your light the bulbs that usually come with lights aren't the best so you change them out get a good bulb like API. The bulbs are a lot brighter and bring out the colors better. I can't tell if the light you are getting has separate reflectors but that will make a difference.

If you have a mixed tank remember just because a coral isn't sending out stingers doesn't mean they aren't at war. When leathers or mushrooms slime they are releasing chemicals in the water that can cause problems for other corals.

I use chemi pure elite in my tanks I can actually tell on the health of certain corals when it is time to change it.
