Use 1 unit up to 40 gallons, 2 units from 40 to 100 gallons, above 100 gallons add one unit for every 25 gals. 10oz. Contains 1 unit enough to treat 40 gallons.
Chemi-pure Elite formula now contains ferric oxide, that helps remove slime and PO4 (phosphates), giving your coral and fish a healthy environment to grow and live.
Soft corals - Crustose Coralline Algaes - Caulerpas - Gorgonias - Seafans - other invertebrates and fish of all species thrive and grow luxuriously with no water change necessary using real seawater or the better imported mixes. This is not a claim, but fact, experienced by thousands of CHEMI-PURE users. In fact, salt water fish have spawned repeatedly in 5 year old water. CHEMI-PURE does not remove trace elements and is the only filter medium which aids in the natural balance of positive and negative charges, with an emphasis on the beneficial negative ion. 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. The one filtration product we unreservedly recommend for use with CHEMI-PURE is the Poly-Filter, by Poly-Bio Marine! Use one pad above and one below the CHEMI-PURE bag. We also recommend the use of foam fractionation or ""protein skimmers.""Does Chemi-pure remove trace element?
You do not have to worry about Chemi-pure removing trace elements and being a problem. Chemi-pure does contain some carbon and will remove trace amounts of some elements, but not to the extent where you would see any significant effects on any levels in your aquarium.Will Chemi-pure raise my pH higher than it is now?
Chemi-pure works together with your waters chemistry to safely buffer an improper or low pH. It will not raise your pH from any level, but help keep it at a constant level for your aquarium.Can I open the bag and separate the product to fit into my filter?
No, you should never cut open the bag and separate the product at all. The product ingredients do not mix evenly. If it is separated, you may not get the full benefits of the product as it is designed to do.Where in my filter should I place the product?
Anywhere that you can put the product so it has a substantial flow of water going through the bag will do just fine. If you place in a canister filter, put a little bit of filter floss below and above the product to take up some extra room and give a nice fit.Benefits

When fresh water or marine fish and invertebrates are taken from their natural habitat and maintained in a captive condition in an artificial closed system, water quality becomes the most critical factor affecting their health, longevity, and survival. Here is where the aquarium`s life support system, consisting of biological, mechanical, and chemical filtration, working together as an integrated unit, becomes all-important. Unfortunately, water clarity, rather than quality, all too often becomes the most important goal of the individual aquarist. Obviously, optical clarity in the aquarium is certainly desirable from an aesthetic viewpoint and also to pass the all important light penetration and spectrum. However, crystal clear water in the fresh water or marine system does not mean that water quality is at an optimum level. We use micro filtration, diatomaceous earth, chemical filtration, sedimentation, ultraviolet sterilization, ozonization - often used at random, and without regard for what is actually being done to the ability of the water to actually sustain animal life. In many instances, the indiscriminate use of these various components of a life support system negate the good done by the other. Again, the only thing we seem to worry about is whether we have crystal clear water. The clarity is nice, but it does not necessarily represent healthy water - in fact, it can be lethal.
Now, what undoes this natural balance in the aquarium? Excess food, overcrowding, natural contaminants in the air, and a complete misunderstanding of the functions of filtration systems and, especially, a misapplication of those systems and materials.
As we pointed out earlier, we often use various filtration materials without regard for what is actually being done to the ability of the water to sustain animal life. The only thing we seem to worry about is whether or not we have crystal clear water - the latter not necessarily being synonymous with healthy water. It is now generally agreed upon, that a redox/reading within the parameters of 350-400 is the healthiest for invertebrates as well as fishes.
While and empirical approach to aquariology can, to some degree, be successful, a knowledge of the changing conditions in the closed system, based on sound scientific principles and theory, are of utmost importance to the health of your aquatic animals. The closed aquatic system can deteriorate rapidly and, there are always causes and effects of this deterioration. You cannot remedy the cause by concentrating to the exclusion of all else on the effect rather than on the factor, or factors, which cause these effects.
Let`s assume a hypothetical condition wherein we place ourselves in a similar situation as our aquarium inhabitants where we are dependent upon a life support system for our existence. For example, suppose that 100 of us were placed aboard a nuclear submarine for an extended underwater cruise. Here, where there is little room for living quarters, where oxygen must be conserved and unnecessary actions restricted to as great of a degree as possible, we would be expected to be in perfect health at the outset, then we would be totally dependent upon a continuous source of purified air, fresh water, proper food to meet our nutritional requirements, a highly efficient waste disposal system, and proper medical supplies. Given this hypothetical condition, where we have now, for all intents and purposes, changed places with our aquarium in habitants, we are totally dependent upon the life support equipment for our ability not only to stay alive, but to remain healthy. Now, let us take a further hypothetical example, where a small amount of poisonous radioactive contamination is constantly being introduced into the air we are breathing on that submarine. The air may appear to be fresh and pure but the poisonous medium is still there, whether or not we can see it, taste it, or smell it. Now let`s assume that we are being kept alive by the simple expedient of waiting until most of us showed signs of stress and exhaustion and even illness and then changing a portion of the fresh, pure air. We might survive, but our resistance would be depleted slowly but surely, until the continued periods of stress and exhaustion finally led to illness and death. Wouldn`t it have been better to have removed the radioactive contamination from the air before it had these effects upon our health?
The indiscriminate use of various filtration techniques combined with partial water changes can
