If you look at page 1 there is a picture, the bottom part (green stuff) is the phosphate. It's not like a sponge it's like a piece of cloth. It's hard to explain basically imagine lots of strands of cotton put together really tight in to a block. It's like that.

Ok so I'm going to keep the carbon sponge. As the chemi pure elite says it only has a small amount in it. But it removes phosphates so I will remove the phosphate sponge. And put the the chemi.

Ya it has ion exchange resins that do the same thing as carbon which is y it don't need much. You can actually remove both and put some bio media in one.

Ceramic rings. To build a biological bacteria colony in. They eat ammonia put out nitrite then more come in and eat the nitrate and turn it to nitrate and to get rid of nitrate do weekly waterchanges and adding plants can help.
