Chemi-Pure Elite filter media blend targets phosphates and silicates as well as other dissolved organics to assist in the control of nuisance algae.


By combining GFO (granular Ferric Oxide) with Boyd's premium pelletized carbon and placing these inside of a fine-mesh nylon media bag, Chemi-Pure Elite delivers a convenient and effective way to polish your water of odors and toxins while rapidly removing phosphates and silicates that can lead to excess algae growth. Along with proper feeding and a regular water change schedule, Chemi-Pure Elite can greatly simplify maintenance, contribute to system stability, and improve the overall appearance of your aquarium.



  • Now featuring QuickWash Carbon, a pelletized activated carbon that has 30% more surface area than their original carbon
  • Carbon structure is harder and cleaner, reducing the potential of HLLE developing in your fish due to fine carbon dust particles
  • Keeps aquariums crystal clear
  • Filters out phosphates (PO4) and silicates (SIO2)
  • Reduces nuisance algae
  • Removes dissolved organics
  • Filters out coppers, metals, odors and phenol


Four Sizes Available:

  • 3.1 oz (Treats up to 10 gallons)
  • 6.5 oz (Treats up to 25 gallons)
  • 11.74 oz (Treats up to 50 gallons)
  • 49.96 oz (Treats up to 200 gallons)


Directions: Keep Chemi-pure Elite sealed wet in container until ready for use. Rinse bag under running water for 5 to 10 seconds. Place bags into a high flow area of your sump, reactor, canister filter, or HOB filter. For best results, water should flow gently through the filter bag and media. Chemi-pure Elite should be replaced approximately every 2-4 months depending on bio-load. If more than one Chemi-pure Elite filter bag is used, change one at a time every week until all bags have been replaced.

Product Questions

How is the volume of each container divided inside each size?
Question by: Brian on Apr 17, 2020, 11:25 AM
Hi Brian,

Based on information from the manufacturer it looks like each container holds a single pouch of media designed for a set volume of water. The "Bulk" packages have smaller pouches but we do not have those at the moment.

Happy Reefing!

I have a 200G Fowlr with lots of big fishes ... for about 2 years ... and a 45G sump. Should I put the chemipure elite bag in the filter cup if my sump? All water is forced to go thru it but it has very high water flow ... is it fine?
Question by: Amit Singh on Apr 12, 2020, 9:02 PM
Hey there!

I would consider moving it a part of the tank that does not have so much flow hitting it all the time and how quickly it would go through it. I like to tie mine to a sting and float in the skimmer section.

Take care
