Purigen advice

When I put in my driftwood today I also added a packet of purigen to absorb any trace tannins my dis coloring my water. My tank isn't cycled yet I am over 3 weeks in and very close to being cycled, predicting next few days. Will the addition of purigen effect my cycle? I read it also removes ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates, I'm all worried now that I may have effected my fish less cycle, thanks!

Joe

It won't bother your cycle at all. It's nitrogen control properties are generally way less than people are led to believe.
