Purigen comes in its own bag. Go give the other back and ask for a refund.

Purigen™ is a premium synthetic adsorbent that is unlike any other filtration product. It is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water at a rate and capacity that exceeds all others by over 500%. Purigen™ controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise release these harmful compounds. Purigen’s™ impact on trace elements is minimal. It significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. Purigen™ darkens progressively as it exhausts, and is easily renewed by treating with bleach. Purigen™ is designed for both marine and freshwater use. This product is sold by volume. Cited weight is minimal weight.

great idea putting purigen in a bag in a canister. Allows for maximum contact with the product. Try get as much flow as your sump / canister will allow.

Warr - sorry to be different - no SchyffS - the water must flow slowly through the canister filter for the purigen (and for a matter of fact - all/any chemical filtration) to be really effective.
So, e.g. a 500 l/hour power-head will be MORE than sufficient....

I understand, I thought these canister filters would only have that sort size pumps. ;)
