From the sounds of your post in another thread, it sounds like a resin change solved the problem? No more phosphates?

I was just thinking about this thread last night when I was rereading a section of Borneman's Coral book. He mentions that phosphate removers that use aluminum oxides can be bad for clauvaria - which I remember you have. Might be something to keep in mind. Here's a good article...

That is an excellent article and thanks very much for bringing it to my attention. I was glad to read that Rowaphos is not aluminum based. I guessed right! WooHoo!

I've been testing my phosphates regularly and it continues to go down. Yesterday it was at .05 mg/l (which is a far cry from the .8 mg/l). Installing the phosphate reactor AND changing the resin was the ticket.

I think I owe you a mocha when you're in my neck of the woods!
