Use of GFO By Johnny on 1/3/10

I have a smaller system , 80 gallon with 40 gallon sump/refugium- I use it in a BRS 4X8 mesh bag- I rinse it 3X in RO/DI (about 1/3 gallon each time)- just takes a few minutes- then place the bag in the return flow in the sump. I change it every 2 weeks. Works great.

No question this material works well. Use it in one of the reactors offered here and adjust the flow as instructed. It last longer and worked faster than I expected after using other brands.
Phosphate Blaster..... By Deep Blue Sea on 12/22/09

I use this product in a large media reactor (1000 gal+ system) sandwiched between two layers of carbon so that it doesn't escape through the top of the reactor. It brought down and continues to maintain phosphate levels at or near zero. Once the loaded up media reactor is ready to go, it is imperative to send initial exit water out into the sink/sewer and not into the tank until the water runs clear for a couple of minutes. Works like a charm.
It is also a good idea to load up your media reactor in a well ventilated place (ideally outside) as there is quite a bit of rust dust that becomes airborne when used in large qtys.

This is so much more cost effective than purchasing GFO from anywhere else I could find. I believe the GFO pellets are the way to go and they do a great job keeping phospate in check.

I purchased this product along with the ROX.8 Carbon to use in the Dual BRS GFO and Carbon reactor. What an incredible solution to my phosphate problem! It has reduced the phosphates to below my test kits ability to measure. It's great. I don't have any problems with it causing any dust in the tank at all. It's great and I keep using it constantly in my sump.
