What's your stock in what size tank? If you have a high bio load replace the carbon with more bio rings. Or you can just replace it with poly fill and call it a day. Purigen is a lil pricey, but worth it since it can be used over n over. But a big bag of poly fill costs like $3 will last forever and will polish your water.

Hey guys so I have purigen in my 55 gallon and love it and am soon going to add it to my other tanks

But I use liquid ferts as well as root tabs for my plants and and I know carbon can absorb the liquid ferts so does purigen do this as well
