Seachem Prime is a concentrated conditioner designed to remove harmful chemicals such as chlorine and chloramine from freshwater and saltwater aquariums. The pet-safe formula detoxifies ammonia, nitrites and nitrates and provides essential ions and contributes to the production of a natural slime coat.
Seachem Prime is five times more concentrated than competing products and will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Aquarists can rest assured knowing that the solution is non-acidic and will not impact delicate pH balances in the aquarium, and reef hobbyists specifically will appreciate the fact that Prime will not over-activate skimmers.
Prime is the perfect addition to any tank during cycling as it effectively alleviates ammonia and nitrite toxicity as the formula contains a binder that renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them permanently. Perfect for new tanks and whenever you are adding or replacing water.

Seachem Purigen is a tool that every hobbyist, both beginner and advanced, should have in their aquatic tool kit. It is a scientifically formulated premium synthetic adsorbent that is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from both freshwater and saltwater at a rate and capacity that exceeds all other competitive products by over 500%.
The formula helps to control ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would build up and release harmful chemicals into your aquarium water column, negatively impacting all aquatic life within the aquarium. Though Purigen's impact on beneficial trace elements is minimal, it significantly raises redox and polishes water with unparalleled clarity.
Seachem Purigen's ability to clear haziness and polish water is unparalleled in the market today. Unlike other available competitive products which are just basic ion-exchange resins, this solution is specifically designed to be an organic scavenging resin and generally ignores simple elemental compounds, having an extreme affinity for nitrogenous organics. Nitrogenous compounds come from aquarium waste produced by fish, coral, as well as plants. The Purigen beads are uniquely spherical and macro-reticular in shape and the increased surface area provides an enhanced capacity with microscopic pores that increase its usable surface area to many times that of other products on the market, which are made of purely spherical resin. The versatile product can be used in a wide variety of filtration applications such as in a canister filter, media chamber, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter.
To add to the already incredibly functionality of this product, Purigen can actually be regenerated to retain efficiency and effectiveness in the long term. As it adsorbs waste products, the beads will change colour from a pale blonde to a dark brown, nearly black coloration. Once it is exhausted, it can be regenerated with a solution of bleach and water. The bleach will literally "burn off" the organics that have been removed from the tank. Watch out for products that claim to be regenerable with a brine solution. That is the regeneration procedure for ion-exchange purposes. Brine solutions will not remove necessary harmful organics. While such resins have a limited capacity for organic adsorption, a brine regeneration process only replaces removed ionic compounds and it does not destroy large organic molecules that were removed, which is the primary function of organic adsorption resins in the first place.
Seachem Stability is a scientifically formulated solution designed to quickly and safely establish an aquarium biofilter in both freshwater and saltwater environments, helping to prevent the number one cause of fish death - new tank syndrome.
The formula contains a synergistic blend of aerobic, anaerobic and facultative bacteria that help to aid in the breakdown of potentially harmful waste organics, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Seachem Stability uses non-sulphur fixing bacteria that will not produce toxic hydrogen sulphide and is completely safe for all aquatic organisms and plants. There is no danger of overuse!
Many other competing products use bacteria that are unstable, and the requirements for their development and growth operate within a limited range of temperatures, pH, organic loads and other variables. If any one of these parameters falls out of the appropriate range, the entire bacterial culture will quickly die, compromising the biological security of your tank as well as causing fish death. But Stability does not have this problem as the conditions for bacterial growth fall into a much larger range. Additionally, when other various bacteria start to die (most often from the high organic load caused by the death of a fish, plant or other organisms) Stability will actually become more effective in establishing new biofilters.
Seachem Tidal 110 MatrixCarbon is the ideal powerful chemical filter media for freshwater aquariums. The high-efficiency material is made up of activated carbon that has been formed into a spherical bead for optimum hydrodynamics. It will not pack together, and combined with high density macroporous binding sites, ensures a consistent flow and contact of water at all times.
Features a very low ash content, which means it has a minimal impact on the pH levels within your tank, and even in distilled water, the pH will not raise about 7.0. Compared to other carbon filter media on the market, MatrixCarbon has the lowest detectable leachable phosphate content and outperforms other carbons but at least twofold in the capacity to remove organic matter, rates of absorption and duration of use.
This material acts not only as a chemical filter but as a unique mechanical filter as well, though it is only capable of filtering objects of molecular size. Featuring extremely minute cracks and crevices called macropores and micropores, the microporous carbon removes primarily metals and small ions such as trace minerals and is well suited for air filtration, while macroporous carbons remove primarily larger organic molecules (like nitrogenous waste) and are best suited to water filtration.
Seachem Clarity is a top-of-the-line water clarifier that is suitable for use in both fresh and saltwater environments. The scientifically formulated solution employs a highly advanced polymeric flocculating agent that is completely safe for all delicate reefs, corals and live plants.
When adding Seachem Clarity to the water column, a cloudy hazy will begin to form. This means the solution is beginning to work and is effectively clumping together small particulate matter into large enough pieces (which will become increasingly visible) that can be eliminated from the aquarium via mechanical filtration.

Seachem Matrix Bio-Media is a professional grade high porosity bio-media designed to provide efficient biofiltration specifically for the targeted removal of nitrogenous waste in both freshwater and marine aquariums. This high capacity biofiltration helps to control harmful compounds in your aquarium such as ammonia, nitrate and nitrite, effectively keeping these elements at safe levels as to not harm the aquatic inhabitants of your tank.
The media is an inorganic solid approximately 10 mm in diameter and boasts an exceptionally large surface area, with each litre of Seachem Matrix Bio-Media providing as much surface area (<162 m) as 40 litres of plastic bio-balls! The difference in efficacy and space-saving ability will make your head spin! As well, many plastic bio-materials only provide an external surface area for bacteria cultivation, whereas this media offers a spacious internal macroporous surface area with macropores that are the optimal size to support beneficial nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria. Unlike other common forms of bio-media, this allows Seachem Matrix Bio-Media to easily remove nitrate along with ammonia and nitrite, simultaneously and in the same filter for a more efficient and effective process.
The media is completely inert and will not break down, nor does it need to be replaced. It is also compatible with nearly every type of wet and wet-dry filter.
Use 250 mL of Seachem Matrix for each 200 L (50 US gallons) of aquarium water. The media may be placed in any kind of filter and is noticeably effective when used in a canister filter. The media is sufficiently large enough that no filter bag should be required for most applications. It works quite well in a variety of drip tray systems but may find that the larger Seachem Pond Matrix is better suited for such applications

All plants require a source of carbon and Flourish Excel is a simple source of readily available organic carbon that directly benefits the growth and overall development of a wide variety of aquatic plants. Typically carbon comes from CO2, but it can also be derived from simple organic compounds such as photosynthetic intermediates, which are found in this formula.
Now, this isn't to say that using one would negate the other efficacy, on the contrary! Due to the fact that processes surrounding the production and development of photosynthetic intermediates occur simultaneously, aquarists are able to achieve substantial benefits when using both Seachem Flourish Excel in addition to in-tank CO2 injections. The combination of these two carbon-based additives is well suited for situations when continuing to add CO2 could result in dangerously low pH levels within the aquarium. Additionally, the solution has efficient iron reducing properties which promote the ferrous state of iron (Fe+2), which is more easily utilized by aquatic plants than ferric iron (Fe+3).
CO2 is needed to produce longer chain carbon compounds known as photosynthetic intermediates that contain compounds such as ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate, and 2-carboxy-3-keto-D-arabinitol 1,5 bisphosphate. In layman's terms, Seachem Flourish Excel does not contain these exact compounds, but ones that are quite similar, allowing you to bypass the involvement of CO2 by introducing already finished, structurally similar compounds to the benefit of your delicate aquatic plants.
