Phosphates

Hi all. I have a 29G tank and I'm wondering what the best way would be to help reduce phosphates. It only has a HOB with filter floss since I felt the tank was too small to put in a sump.

I was looking at a GFO reactor but was wondering if it would work to jisy put a filter bag of GFO in my HOB filter.

Would this help do you think? And what product would you advise? I think I can get PhosGuard locally but anything else I would have to order.

Or should I perhaps look at the dual reactor from BRS with the GFO and carbon chambers?

I guess I should mention that my phosphates are .16 right now. Doing a water change after class tomorrow and am going to check again after.

Phosgaurd or CPE will help a little, but the easiest way would probably be a couple 50% wcs which should get you to .04ish

Phosphates

You can just place the product in a mesh bag and place it in a high flow area. .16ppm of P4 isn't bad at all.
