Boyd Chemi-Pure by by Boyd Enterprises
Boyd Enterprises Chemi-Pure is an ionic media acts mechanically as well as chemically, absorbing all the various elements of decomposition. The resin produces negatively charged ions, while removing excess acids and ammonia.
- Keeps pH at constant level
- Chemical absorption filter
- Aids in the natural balance of positive and negative charges
Chemi-Pure comes packed in pure polyester filter bags in sealed plastic bottles, called 1 unit, one of which is recommended for up to 40 gallons of water, and which is completely active for 4-6 months with no `regeneration` or cleaning required and is cheaper than carbon or pads. Use 1 unit up to 40 gallons, 2 units from 40 to 100 gallons, above 100 gallons add one unit for every 25 gals.
Please note: product is supposed to arrive moist. (As carbon draws moisture from the resin beads in this product, once they crack or dry, they are no longer active, so it must be shipped and used while moist).

I've been using Chemi Pure as long as I have my saltwater aquarium. One "occupant", a Racoon Butterfly fish was bought 9/11/1992 and is still healthy. I believe that Chemi Pure has something to do with that. My set-up is very simple. Just a Protein Skimmer and an outside filter to which I add the Chemi Pure.
This product is the best I have used for removing organic waste - and maintaining pH. My water has a low KH hardness - and this product really works to keep the pH up at 7.0 (or slightly higher). While I have canister filters, there isn't enough room for all of the media I use, so I put the Chemi-Pure in a power filter on the back. This way, I have easy access to rinse the media and put it back in. I don't replace it until I start to notice drops in pH (usually after about 3 months of continuous use). My aquariums are overstocked, so I had no expectation of it lasting for 6 months. The company that makes this (Boyd Enterprises) is also very supportive in answering any questions. They assured me that Chemi-Pure does NOT dump harmful waste back into the aquarium - even when exhausted (as some online sources claimed).

This is a great product-I use it in everyone of my tanks!!!
like the title said, greatest product ever. You will see a noticeable difference in a week.
My fish love it, and I love it too. Easy to use. Already in the nylon bag. Just drop it in the canister filter and enjoy clear, odor free water for 6 months.
I find that all my reef inhabitants respond well to the addition of Chemi-pure.
Since I used Chemi-Pure , my fish look more healthy and the tank is clearer than before!
