    Hi Guy's,

    Need some advice where to put these in the Boyu TL 550. I bought Phosguard and Purigen today :thumbup: . I have activated carbon already.

    I have put the Activated Carbon on the Right hand side chamber (below the Filter Floss), Phosguard in the Second chamber from the right (below the Skimmer) and Purigen (below the Heater) in the third chamber from the right. The 4th Chamber has the Pump.

    What do you guy's think?:)

    Just make sure the phosguard and Purigen are in high flow areas

    allow the water to firstly pass through your skimmer,then phosphate media/s and then carbon.
    so basically
    1.skimmer
    2.carbon
    3.phosphate remover
    4.water back to your tank

    Ideal Sequence

    Good buys!

    Mechanical filtration/floss - IF at all necessary
    ProteinSkimmer
    *Activated Carbon*
    Phosguard
    Purigen

    *Esp. if unsure of Activated Carbon grade or Brand's Phosphate leaching capacity*

    If quality carbon assured, then , Ok to place after Phosguard

    Yup, Brent,dedicated hi flow THROUGH is most beneficial.

    With armaments as above, you have chemical, and mech. waste management sewn up.

    Just remember to replenish skimmed/absorbed/adsorbed trace elements as part of routine , small waterchanges, OR additions.
