Ordered this when I originally set up my reef tank but didn't use it until about a year later. Changed my reefing life! Phosphates are way down and corals look great now

Bought the granular (the cheaper of the 2) GFO's that BRS offers. I ran it in a Nextreef MR1 reactor and used the recommended amount from the BRS Reef calculator for GFO. It lasted 4 weeks (with heavy fish/coral bio-load). Phosphates dropped from 2.0 to 0.0 overnight. It stayed for about 3-4 weeks and began to creep back up so I removed it and increased the amount. Hoping to get 6 weeks out of it. I recently purchased the high capacity because I think it'll be a better fit for my system.

Added the BRS GFO to my BRS single reactor. Works Great!! Brought my phosphate readings down to 0 in a matter of a couple days. Great product!

this has to be one of the best purchases I have made for my tank. It helped me defeat an algae outbreak and i have used it since.
HC GFO is a better product By Joshua on 7/25/12
Joshua would recommend this product to a friend
In terms of the quantity of phosphate removed, this GFO performs very well. I use it actively in a BRS reactor and had zero problems. However, it does produce more fines when initially flushing the media, and from what I've read, the high capacity stuff holds up better during regeneration because it is more dense.
Great By Sally Boy on 7/13/12

Wow - This Stuff is Awesome! By Eli on 6/24/12

Hey Fellow reef enthusiasts - I have a 29 gal Bio-Cube reef system with HQI - that has an overflow to sump, and heavy filtration. My tank is very clear all the time, but I was still having minor issues with some brown algae here and there. Immediately and within days of starting to use the GFO in a non conventional reactor chamber, using about 1/2 a pound of the GFO in a mesh bag - I immediately noticed that my algea break out issues went away... My tank was clear of all algae and has been since then. This brings me to two days ago. I decided to do some maintenance and I un-plugged my pump to the GFO chamber (due to time constraints and a partial issue that needed attending)... I set aside the project for the next day... Unfortunately, two days have passed. I noticed some brown algae the next day - then by the second day - my tank was almost brown. I was like freaking out - I then, realized what had changed, and that I hadn’t completed my GFO maintenance - What a Maroon! is all I have to say!!!!!... Well, I have replaced the GFO with a fresh batch, re-connected the reactor and within two hours of re-connecting it, I could already tell the difference. I love this product - it’s expensive, but well worth it. I can’t live without it. I will be ordering more. I am also going to be adding some to a home made fluidized chamber, plus to the high flow area of my sump - I will report again on any further changes. Don’t go without it. This stuff is worth every penny.

Brought my phosphates down considerably. Easy to wash.
granuels vs. pellets By Lee on 6/18/12
Lee would recommend this product to a friend
Definitely does the job. I find the granules produce less “dust” than the pellets. Rinsing the media with RO water to start does a good job at clearing the material of dust before introducing it into the system.
