If you feed him snails here and there, you may not have to do anything to his teeth. I haven't seen too much fin nipping out of them either....Maybe it's a rare occurrence.

I seem to remember a member using clam on the half shell as a weekly or monthly treat to help with that issue...I'm just having a terrible time remembering some of this stuff today.

I believe they state it can be recharged up to six times.
On Seachems site they also recommend that it be used in conjunction with a quality carbon as they do pull different things from the water and compliment one another. They do not specifically promote it as a carbon replacement even though some retailers do present it that way.

What I have been using with good success is Purigen and Chemi-pure combo.
The ion exchange resins in chemi-pure help with phosphate and metals.

I do like the Purigen/Chemi-pure combo as well...then used the chemi-pure elite that has GFO in it with good results. Just don't like how chemipure fits in my reactor. Restricts flow from the size of the bag.
Either way, I believe the want to use Purigen was for a money saving choice due to limited budget.

EDIT: That said, one doesn't even know if you need to run any type of media in a system before it is set up. It might not need any of these things.

On the dog face puffer, you could prolong the growing of the teeth by feeding it hard shells food. However you may still end up having to do some work on it but maybe once a yr.
