please share your experiences!

I use it in my FX6.
To be honest, I got irritated with having to maintain or change out other chemical medias, such as Carbon or Ammo Chips.
Went online and found this lil gem called Purigen.
I found out that it did pretty much what I wanted (gives crystal clear water) along with a bunch of other fancy stuff that I'm not clever enough to understand.
Along with this, it can be RECHARGED.
After it has absorbed as much as it can, you can remove and bleach it and throw it straight back in as if new.
The smallest bag of the stuff you can get is 100g which is good for 100G.
It's not exactly a bargain but for the effective lifetime of it, there really is no alternative.
All in all, I would say that there is no reason NOT to have it, but it is definitely not necessary.
