It is used to lower phosphates. You can tell its reached it capacity when your phosphates start to increase which means its time to replace it with fresh GFO.

Gotcha, thanks guys/gals. I'll be picking it up today and hopefully have it running by tonight. Hopefully this will help keep my hair algae in check along with my algae blenny and foxface!
