What is Chemi-Pure? Chemi-Pure is a nylon filter bag filled with a high grade blend of activated carbons and ion exchange resins. The activated carbons filter particulates and waste while the ion exchange resins help remove nitrogen (ammonia and nitrate) build up which is harmful to your fish. Chemi-Pure also stabilizes water chemistry while keeping your pH levels perfectly constant. It's effects are far reaching, another reason why aquarists worldwide have been using it for years to help improve the life and health of their aquariums. Below are some added benefits.

Frequently asked questions about Chemi-Pure:
What makes my aquarium cloudy in the first place? Some of the main problems that cause cloudy aquarium water are: New fish are providing more waste material; overfeeding can cause decomposing food on the aquarium bottom or floating around in the water, or a change in lighting can increase bacteria growth, making the water cloudy.
I have a fish bowl that has cloudy water. Can I use Chemi-Pure? Chemi-Pure is built for fish tanks and aquariums that have a filter system. For a fish bowl, it's easier to change the water and remove any waste material from the gravel.
My cloudy aquarium happens to be a freshwater aquarium. Will Chemi-Pure still work? Yes! Chemi-Pure works on both marine aquariums and freshwater aquariums, just as long as you add it to the filtration system.
What if my aquarium water is cloudy for a while? Frequently, organic particulates provide cyanobacteria in the aquarium with an edible food supply, causing a red slime algae bloom. If this happens, you'll need to remove the red slime with Boyd's Chemiclean Red Slime Remover.
For how long does Chemi-Pure protect my aquarium from cloudy water? Chemi-Pure usually lasts for up to 6 months before it needs to be replaced. It's a value no aquarium should be without.
