    Ok equipment question….If I do what the Purigen people say I can put 4 100 ml bags in my 29 gallon JBJ at around $8.00 a bag or go with this from BRS all opinions welcome......:bowdown:
    P.S. would I still also use chemipure or am I bordering on over kill?

    4 bags at one time? That seems like watt too much. You can run the reactor, or buy a product like Phosban that comes with a media bag and just use that. If you buy the reactor you will have to buy GFO as well. I run the media bag on my 24.
