Mesh Media Bags are used to hold media like carbon, GFO or any other loose media. The mesh bags allow for flow through the media while keeping the loose media contained. By strategically placing the media bags in your sump, you can control the amount of water that could flow through the media and contact time.
Mesh Media Bags can also be used as effective filter socks
200 Micron Mesh Media Bag
Mesh Media Bags can be used for a variety of applications, from holding loose filter media to trapping detritus and free floating particles. In most applications, a reactor will be best for medias like carbon and GFO but some systems will not have room for a reactor, and that is where media bags are very handy. They can conform to AIO aquarium chambers or sump baffles directing flow through the media bag or placed in an open place of the sump for passive flow.
- Easily cleanable & reusable
- Great for medias of all sizes

Yes, this does work for purigen. Something I found when using it for this is that the draw string does not pull absolutely shut (as you could imagine) and if it is allowed to tumble or slouch in the sump it can sneak out the top. I typically will also tie the drawstring to something in the sump to ensure it remains upright. Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with!
Thank you for reaching out.
I usually wash them off in warm tap water and then hang dry them. If they are particularly dirty, I will wash them in the washer with out any detergent.
