Here's a thread about Purigen from the reef club in my area:

http://hvreef.org/yabb/index.php?topic=1484.0

I don't know much about it myself.

As with the thread linked to, many misunderstand the purpose of Purigen. It is not a carbon substitute and will only affect nitrogenous waste compounds. Nothing more...

Cheers

We use it in our 90g. It seems to help keep the nitrates under control.
