I wouldn't use Phosguard. I heard it leaches aluminum into your system.

I'm personally going to buy the 2 -Dr.'s brand called PhosPure. It's really cheap & I'm betting it's identical the more expensive PO4 removers such as:

Kent PowerPhos
Marc Weiss Phosphate+Silicate Magnet
Rowaphos

Ya steer clear of the Phosgaurd.

i would do a water change and vaccum the sand. Then if you want to add some filter media, it will help.

What type of corals do you have?

Your brother probably overfed.

I've only tried Rowaphos, but it works like a beauty!
