Yes. Just don't add a full dose at 1st. Removing phosphate too fast can shock the corals.

No problem... One thing how do I know what to add? I take it the direction would tell me... Warner marine has some Phosphate remover. I also was thinking about BRS... What do you think would be better?

The Warner Marine HC is supposed to be good, but it's expensive. $50 for 400g. I use BRS GFO pellets. They have their own version of HC and it's $38 for 453g.
Which every you use, you should use it in a reactor and start with 1/2 the recommended dose.
