Re: Seachem purigen
Thank you for your question. Yes, raising redox, or ORP, is actually a benefit of Purigen. Oxidation-reducation reactions are chemical reactions that occur in the aquarium environment. Redox describes the ability for the loss of an electron by a molecule, atom or ion to the gain of an electron by another molecule, atom or ion. Without this ability to gain electrons, many minerals cannot be absorbed and properly assimilated. So it is very important to keep a healthy redox level via proper dissolved oxygen levels, UV Sterilization, and proper divalent cations.
Have a nice weekend.
