Is this product any good?!?

Will this clearmax make a big difference to clarity in my tank?

There is not a problem as of yet, our tank isn't quite off the ground yet, I'm waiting for our powerheads to arrive and then we will get the live rock and RO water and start the tanks cycle!

We have a 260litre tank with fluval 305 canister filter and I was wondering as well as some carbon and filter floss, if this would help.

running a canister filter on a sw is fine plenty of members do it just clean it regularly so detritus wont build up in it

I was always told to avoid it if possible, nitrate and trite factory and bad for corals. Unless your doing fish only

Phew, at the moment we going to do a FOWLR so hopefully won't get too many problems as long as we are up to date with maintaining a healthy filter!

My LFS recommends emptying the canister and filling it with LR fragments, I'm also adding carbon and filter floss
