Seachem Hypersorb 100ml Bagged (SC-155)

Seachem HyperSorb is a synthetic absorbent media with excellent organic filtering capacity, and helps to stabilise the ionic balance in water. It also helps to controls ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels in freshwater. It is an excellent substitute for carbon media.


  • Removes organic waste, toxic vapours and other pollutants.
  • Ideal for all types of water, including marine, brackish, and a broad spectrum of freshwater from acid to alkaline.
  • Stabilise the ionic balance in freshwater
  • Controls ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate in freshwater
  • Has all the advantages of carbon and none of the disadvantages.
  • HyperSorb changes colour progressively as it becomes exhausted, and then can be easily regenerated with ordinary household bleach.
  • Regeneration is near 100% effective and can be performed repeatedly.
  • Economical and cost effective


Use in a filter bag such as The Bag. Each 250 mL treats up to 300 L (75 US gallons). Rinse before use. Exhaustion is indicated by a pronounced discolouration of the beads from yellow to deep brown.

REGENERATION: Soak in a 1:1 bleach:water solution for 24 hours in a non-metallic container in a well ventilated area and away from children. Use regular 8.25% hypochlorite household bleach (non-scented, no dyes, do not use a splash-less bleach). Rinse well, then soak for 8 hours with a solution containing 4 tablespoons of Prime, or equivalent dechlorinator per cup of water. Rinse well. For freshwater use, soak for 4 hours with a solution containing 2 tablespoons of buffer per cup of water (Discus Buffer, Neutral Regulator). Original color and full activity should now be restored and HyperSorb is ready for reuse. Caution: some slime coat products may permanently foul HyperSorb and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odour of bleach/chlorine is detectable. In case of doubt, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.


Can I use HyperSorb in a blackwater system or would tannic acid be one of organic molecules it removes?

A: Any other resin or carbon will be more aggressive at removing the tannins, colours, etc. Because of that, Hypersorb would be my first choice. My second choice would be Renew which we sell as an economical and less aggressive alternative to carbon.

Would it be better to use HyperSorb or Purigen in a reef aquarium?

A: I would definitely prefer Purigen over Hypersorb because Purigen has a much greater capacity for organic removal in salt water than Hypersorb.

Can you use Seachem's The Bag as the filter bag for Hypersorb in the bulk form?

A: Absolutely, The Bag is designed to hold all of our chemical filtration media, including Hypersorb. It will also stand up to bleach and acid when necessary to regenerate our resins.

I set up a tank with HyperSorb as my filtration media and my water turned an orange/brown colour. Am I using too much HyperSorb?

A: HyperSorb is an adsorbent media/resin that is incapable of leaching anything into the water column. The orange/brown colour you speak of could possibly be due to the leaching of organic acids by driftwood, peat, or other organic material if present in your system. If it is a new aquarium, it could also be a bacterial bloom due to an establishing biological filter. HyperSorb does not need to be rinsed prior to use.
