Boyd Enterprises (Chemi-Pure)

Chemi-pure can be used with all water types as a chemical absorption filter and ion generator and exchange unit to positively keep pH at a perfect constant level. Also fantastic for use with African Cichlids and Discus! Needs replacement only every six months under normal circumstances. 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 1/2 unit enough to treat 20 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.

Manufacturer Info

Boyd Enterprises Aquarium Supplies
Boyd Enterprises was founded in 1962 by Dick Boyd, who had been working in aquarium stores since 1947 at the age of 17. He had a love and passion for building and maintaining aquariums as a hobby. Through his constant experimentation to create his own filtration techniques, he developed the world renowned Chemi-pure - the original ion filter medium. In 1955, Dick Boyd along with three others founded the first Marine Aquarium Society in the United States. In 1972, he and his wife Linda, moved into a house large enough so he could build his dream aquarium. It took two years, but by 1974 Mr. Boyd had constructed a 3,000 gallon aquarium that was home to various corals, fish and invertebrates. Boyd Enterprises strives to keep up Dick’s level of Excellence, quality and customer service.

Q
Chemi Pure Elite placement
Can you just rinse the bag and place it the back of Nuvo 30L?
Asked : Jan 10, 2018
By : Ernesto
 
 
 
A
Yes. As long as it is in an area where it gets water flowing through the bagged media, you will get the most benefit out of it. A media basket is an option insert which has shelves that can hold different media and floss.

Q
What size of Chemi-Pure for a 32 Gallon Biocube Reef Tank
I have a Intank Media shelf and I plan on have filter floss on the first shelf, Chemi-pure on the second and Matrix at the bottom. Let me know if you feel this is a good combination or if I should trade something out.

Great for Nano
reviewerbadge
PROS
Clears the water, lowers phosphates.
CONS
cost per exahastion date is high comparitive to other flitration forms or media type.
REVIEW
I like this product. The 6.5 bag is perfect for a nano tank. It keeps the phosphates down and keeps the water relatively clear. I do however believe this product is exhausted after about 2 months. On their website it says replace after 4. I would do 2 1/2 max, but then again every tank is different...Read More
