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

    I also bought Seachem Purigen, came in a bottle so had to make my own little bag of it. Was like R150 or so?

    Can purigen be put in a canister? What flow rate must be put over or through it?

    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....

    You know what - I have NO idea what pumps canister filters have. I have never used or owned one in my life ;-)
    So you could be QUITE correct...
