PhosBan Reactor

Does anyone use one of these? I am figthing a phospate battle right now. I know how it was introduced (tap water top-off's) but I can't seem to get rid of it now.

I was thinking about picking up some PhosBan and a PhosBan reactor 150 (found one for $37). Are these 2 products worth while? Is there something better (for the same price or less)?

I've been figthing green hair alage for 3 weeks now. My tang is doing a decent job but I'd really like to clear it up quicker. Been doing 5 gallon water changes every 4 days now 2 weeks now. Not gaining much ground.

Hence the question... Thanks in advance!

Where did you find it for that price? I have been looking for a few weeks and seems they are backordered and if there not they want $50.
I have friends who use it and they love it. Thye have 2 one for carbon and 1 for phosban.
What is your phosphate readings?

I've been eyeballing these as well. I think they would work in theory any way. I've came real close on two occasions to order one but I wanted first hand experience oppinions before I did,

they work well especially witht he upflow design. Everyone is out of stock right now and there are susposed to be a limmited amount coming in this week. More should follow in the coming weeks. TLF redesign the mounting bracket causing a huge delay. If you find someone who has one in stock definately pick it up. I have people that have been waiting since january! 8O

Darin if you end up with an xtra one somehow let me know and I'll take it. I need to order another bulb from you anyway.
