Boyd Enterprises, makers of Chemi-pure, Chemi-pure Elite, Vita Chem and Chemi-Clean, has a long history of serving your needs as aquarium keepers. In fact, we have been serving hobbyists for more than 50 years.
Chemi-pure, the original Boyd product was developed by Dick Boyd in 1960. Dick had been working in fish stores and building aquariums since 1947, at the age of 17. Through his own experimentation with aquarium filtration, he developed the original, world-renowned Chemi-pure. The results are the same today as they were then, crystal clear, ionically balanced water that creates the perfect environment for fresh and saltwater aquariums.
In 1972 Dick Boyd moved his family to a new home, which would include a 3,000- gallon reef aquarium. It took two years to build, but by 1974 it was ready to become home to various fish, corals and invertebrates. Within five years many of the inhabitants had begun spawning and reproducing in the aquarium.
The only filtration medium? Chemi-pure.
Dick’s aquarium continued to thrive for 18 years with only minimal water changes, until his passing in 1992.
Over the years, Dick Boyd would develop several other products in response to your needs. Chemi-pure Elite was created to help eliminate algae causing phosphates. Boyd created Chemi Clean to deal with cyanobacteria, and Vita-chem to help maximize the health of fresh and saltwater fish.
The Boyd line up is better today than ever. We’ve added new sizes to better serve you if you are keeping larger aquariums or nano tanks.
New filtration techniques have evolved but Chemi-pure and its sister products remain the most effective ways to create a healthy, thriving aquarium.
We have heard it time and again. Everyone from curators at public aquariums to your local aquarium shop to long-time and brand new aquarium keepers — whether it’s reef aquaria, African cichlids, planted tanks or that 10-gallon tank in your little brother’s bedroom – just as they did 50-plus years ago, Boyd products just plain work.
