buy you wouldn't put the whole lot in your external filter would you?
surely you only put the ammount you need in.
or can i just fill up one of my trays in my tetratec 1200?
i use a uv on one of my 1200's so i want to try out this purigen in the other 1.
i just want to know how much i should buy and how much to use.

You need to buy a 250ml tub and use 155ml of it. . That will be enough to treat your 620 tank for up to 6 months. You will need one of these www.seachem.com/Products/product_pages/TheBag.html
I recommend that you actually buy there bag, the stuff is so small it goes through a lot of bags. .
You just put it in the bag and leave it in the filter, it changes colour when its exhausted. .

Also, would it benefit from putting purigen AND cuprisorb in the same bag?
