    Is Zeosand a "synonym" (so to speak) for Seachem's Purigen, in that do they essentially do the same thing?

    No, purigen has a wider range of absorption. Much like Carbon.
    Zeosand is zeolite in a sand form.

    hence the name:)

    What are the best uses of Purigen and Zeosand, then? I think I got confused reading other threads on these products, so I am now unsure how to plan on using these products.

    (I have a 25lb bag of Zeosand and a 1L jar of Purigen on hand; is there a "formula" roughly-speaking on how much per gallon one would use for each product?_
