Sounds good, just make sure the water flows through the media and not around it for the best results. I've used it for about a year and half now and it keeps nh3
at 0 ppm
for months and is easily regenerated once it's turned brown so you can use it again.
Another product I absolutely love is PhosBan
used with a PhosBan Reactor 150
, Maxi-Jet 400
, 1/2" tubing
, & 1/2" ball valve (comes with the reactor) to control flow (60-90 GPH
). It gets your po4
to 0 ppm
You don’t have to have the reactor and you could put it in sump/hob
filter but it helps to keep it from clumping and is more effective if you do.
This is an Iron Oxide Hydroxide
product that when used in a fluid reactor (to prevent clumping) greatly reduces po4
levels. If using with corals it's best to start off with 1/4 the recommended dosage to see how they react since some corals will retract, bleach, or die off if po4
is reduced too quickly. (The algae in some corals also is feeding off the po4
) If your corals show no sign of problems increase 1/4th weekly. If you don't have corals then I'd use the full 150g from the start.
at 0 ppm
has never been easier using these two products and tank has never looked better and is always algae free.
If you have any questions about either just let me know.
