With the Seachem's purigen how do i add it to the filter, do I buy the filters you put together yourself and add this as the media? What do i soak it in to recharge it? The lighting is LED from MarineLand, with day time and nighttime LED's.

I'll def. look into the API, i do test my water daily, need to protect my investment.

Use in a fine mesh filter bag and add to your filter. (warning, use the finest mesh you can find; purigen is tiny and will slip through most larger filter bags.) Clean when it turns dark brown or black (it's white).

Directions from Seachem's website:
Regeneration: Soak in a 1:1 bleach:water solution for 24 hours in a non-metalic container in a well ventilated area and away from children. Rinse well, then soak for 8 hours with a solution containing 2 tablespoons of Prime®, or equivalent dechlorinator per cup of water. Rinse well. Original color and full activity should now be restored and Purigen® is ready for reuse.

Thank you very much, i've ordered the API master test kit, looking into the filter bags as I type. Thank you for all the help.
