Most hobbyists are familiar with the Chemi-Pure Elite filter media sold in black jars—many of us use it in our reef tanks to keep aquarium water cleaner and clearer. It is extremely convenient and long-lasting compared to standard chemical filter media.
Newly released from Boyd Enterprises is Chemi-Pure Blue. This new Chemi-Pure media is designed specifically for saltwater reef and fish-only aquariums.
In addition to high-grade low-dust pelletized carbon, it also includes premium high-capacity ion-exchange resins (instead of GFO like in Chemi-Pure Elite). This resin mixture does a great job removing dissolved organics, phosphates and silicates. It also raises redox, stabilize pH and removes coppers, metals, odors, medications and dissolved metals.
The small 5.5 oz jar of Chemi-Pure Blue is rated for aquariums up to 35 gallons, which is perfect for my 34-gallon Solana. There is a larger 11 oz jar for aquariums up to 70 gallons. If your aquarium is larger than 70 gallons, you can simply use multiple jars.
Chemi-Pure Blue has been doing a great job keeping the water in my nano reef aquarium crystal clear for the past few weeks. One bag of media can last up to 4 months (depending on your bio-load and water quality), so it is also economical.
If you are looking for the best, single, all-in-one chemical filter media you can use for your saltwater aquarium, I would seriously recommend giving Chemi-Pure Blue a try!
