Just out of curiousity not that I don't trust ya. I took 1cup of RO
water added about as much flake food as I feed my 46g tank. 1 small pinch. I tested for phospates right-away it tested 5ppm phospates right after I put in the flake food And the flake food hasn't even dissolved yet 5ppm is the max reading on the phospate scale.
After it dissolves I am sure it is much higher. Looks like I am making a trip to the grocery store for seafood for some home made blender mush.
