I started using this product almost a year ago. Like many of us I started without using RODI I was using distilled water or Ozarka for topoffs and saltmix. Hair algae and Phosphates soon took their unwated presence. After using this in a Reactor and using the RODI unit from this site no more algae, or nasty CYNO
prefer the pellets over the granules By Lee on 8/10/11
Lee would recommend this product to a friend
The granules need more care in controlling water flow and tumbing to prevent the agent from breaking down and entering the water stream. The pellets seem to be more mechanically stable for use in a reactor. Both products do a fine job in scrubbing PO4 from the system.
Better than other brands used By Mike on 8/8/11

I have used a couple other brands of GFO in the past. after a day or two, they tend to clump up. I have had no clumping with BRS GFO. Thanks for offering a superior product at a great value.

There’s no comparison, GFO took out more phosphates in a 24 hour time frame than its aluminum oxide competitor.

Great stuff at a good price. This GFO has low dust and tumbles quite nicely, all you have to do is tune your reactor till the output water is reading 0 P04 and your done.

Been using BRS HC GFO for the last 6 mos, and while it hasn't been able to take my levels to 0, it seems to be effective in getting them very low.

I started using this GFO a couple of weeks ago in my Phosban reactor, and it is helping greatly in my battle with nuisance algae. It is much cheaper than the other brands and just as effective.

I run BRS GFO for the last year and a half in my 250 gallon system and its great, it doesn't leach phosphates as some of the other product out on the market. It also work very well in a media reactor as it doesn't break down.
GFO AWSOME By Melvin on 6/9/11
Melvin would recommend this product to a friend
Every product that I bought so far works way beyound my expectations and the GFO is no exception. It is perfect for the reactor. Its like a magnet for Phosphates. ZERO in just 18 hrs. BRS is awsome at saving you money in the long run. I wish I found BRS a lot sooner. I would have saved so much money doing things one time instead of many.

I have always used this in BRS reactors which make it easy to use and replace. I watch the rate at which algae grows on my glass as a basis for when to replace my GFO. This product is great for beginners and experts.

Even with just running in a filter sock, my phosphates dropped by half in just 2 weeks. MAKE SURE YOU RINSE BEFORE USING. This stuff turned my tank red for about 2 days, but that was my own fault. Highly reccomended!

Great product! I will be buying more of this! By Chris on 5/10/11
Chris would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this due to it's phenominally low price, and was a little hesitant. It turned out to be an excellent product, and easily performs as well as the higher priced brand name types. I plan to buy more, as soon as I need it. It doesn't require a ton of rinsing, and if you use half the recommended dosage, but change it out twice as often, I've found it works better at reducing algae, and keeps the system more stable. Thanks, BRS!

Cuts down that Phosphate By Jetthril on 3/30/11
Jetthril would recommend this product to a friend
Unlike most other folks would use this product in a reactor, I used this product in a media bag. Be sure to rinse out the dust before use. Due to the fact that the GFO bunches up after getting wet, I would recommend using less than what the calculator on this website recommends and change the media more frequently (not every 8 weeks), that way you water can more easily flow through the media, and the GFO can more easily take out the phosphate in the water.

Works great in a Freshwater Planted Tank By Duane on 3/20/11
Duane would recommend this product to a friend
I first of all borrowed some GFO from a fellow reefer to use in my Planted FW Discus 90gal. I was having a terrible time with algae. I followed the directions on the BRS "Information" page and set up a reactor with the GFO. Within a few days, my Phosphate level went for a 2ppm to a .5ppm. The GFO helps maintain the Phosphates at a acceptable level. It does not zero the phosphates out because my substrate leaches phosphates into the water and I want low level phosphates to aid in plant growth. So I have found this stuff works perfectly for me. So I purchased my own BRS GFO, which is a much better buy than the name brand. Thanks BRS!

Don't be fooled by other "branded" GFO, this one works, and works well. I've used it for years and test 0.0 PO4!
Effective GFO By Michael on 3/17/11
Michael would recommend this product to a friend
I have a 100 gallon heavily stocked SPS tank. The BRS Granular GFO is by far the best cost saving choice and maintains phosphate at nearly zero as well as any of the name brand GFO. I've tried many of the different types on the market and have observed no difference in coral growth and calcification. It is an effective GFO at a fraction of the cost. Keep in mind that running GFO is reported to knock down magnesium levels. You may need to order the magnesium supplements from BRS and a test kit to maintain your levels. Another option is to run GFO sporadically to knock down the phosphate levels and reduce amount you feed. For best results start running GFO with a new tank.
What Phosphate? By Kevin on 3/15/11

What can I say about the GFO? it works as described and extremely fast. The cost is super cheap compared to other brands and way more then enough to last for months. Great job BRS!
