Went to my fav fish store today and everything was on sale for 20% so I bought these.

How does this work? And how much media do I need to put?

I am not sure of the amount for ROWAphos. I know that the BRS GFO you want enough flow so the GFO looks like it is at a boil. You need much of a pump. Look up GFO flow on youtube there are a lot of videos

Right on. Rowaphos is pretty powerful. I'd only fill the reactor about 1/3 at most. Run it like that and test for PO4 before and again after about 5 days. It's great media. Truly first rate.

Your words of caution really are very good advice. Everything good in a reef tank happens slowly over time.
