Overall great product, cost is a little high for quantity though By gsago1979 on 8/18/10

I was very happy with the overall performance of the GFO media in my BRS reactor. With in a few short hours I noticed a difference in my tanks overall appearance including polyp extension and general water clarity. With in a few days I noticed a decrease in algae build up on the glass and a reduction in algae on newly established live rock.
Definitely a satisfied customer on this product but in comparison to the other GFO products Im not sure on the higher price level. It seems quite a bit higher than the other granules but I have not had the oppurtunity to sample the differences yet to truly evaluate the cost/qty/performance benefits.
Great stuff!!! By Jorge on 6/16/10

For me, this high capacity GFO really does last twice as long as regular the regular GFO. This allows me to change it every two months instead of monthly on my 210g reef system.

I first bought 1.75 lbs since I was not sure what kind of results I would see, results = GREAT now I just bought 7 LBS. That should keep me stocked for a while!

Great product at a great price. Only been using a short time and i am already noticing a difference with my phosphate issues.

Low dust and quick to drop phosphates. I used the HC GFO in a media reactor however my brother uses in media bags. Both work great!

This is my second order of BRS High capacity GFO and my 20 and 58 look so good I started a 125. Bulk Reef Supply makes everything so easy and affordable.

This GFO is very nice!! By charles malek on 4/16/10

I just bought the one gallon to try it out. I'm impressed already. While rinsing, this GFO isn't like others. There is WAY less dust and fines that come off it. The rinsing water didn't turn a thick brownish red color like it does with other GFOs.
I don't have issues with PO4 right now, so I'll repost later. We'll see how good this HC GFO works at keeping PO4 low (I'm sure I will good success with it).

Rinses clear very quickly and much less dusty and grainy solid than the regular stuff.

I run the HC GFO in a single BRS reactor and it is a definite phosphate killer always keeps my phosphates in check.I have ran other GFO brands but I must say this one is the best out there.
Low Dust, High absorption By ems on 4/3/10

Much more dense than most GFOs. Little dust and if used in moderation, can be mixed with ROX.
The best bang for your buck!! By Jeff Greene on 3/5/10

This media is the best out there. Why would you not get the HC ferric oxide. It does double what all the other ferric oxides do with less media. I have already noticed that there is less algae on the glass.
HC GFO is Awesome!!!!! By Jason on 3/4/10
Jason would recommend this product to a friend
I have been using the BRS HC GFO for almost a month now and I absolutely love it. The granules seem pre-rinsed as they are so clean. The pellets would require 3-5 gallons of rinsing prior to go in my reactor while this HC stuff rinises with less than a gallon of water (and thats for 1lb of media) Two thumbs way up!!!!!
Great GFO By Brandon Davids on 3/1/10

I highly prefer the HC GFO over any other product. I also prefer it in the simplicity reactor. It's easy and fast to clean and change. I thought I got a good deal on a group buy (from another vendor) for the normal GFO but it was a complete waste of money and time compared to the HC GFO that BRS sells. The cheap GFO bound up into a solid mass in short order and wound up leaving orange dust on everything in my system.
Good GFO By Rich Creadore on 3/1/10

Find the High Capacity GFO to work very well. It's a little harder to get it to lift up in the reactor but that also keeps it from floating as easily as the standard GFO.
Go with the High Capacity GFO By Aerobic on 2/23/10

Compared the GFO's available from BRS and I chose the High Capacity because it is more effecient. Less residue and longer lasting granuals that will not break down in my media reactor. Worth the extra money.
Go with the High Capacity By Aerobic on 2/23/10

Compared all GFO's available and I decided to go with the High Capacity. After only a few days, my phosphate levels dropped significantly. I chose the HC because it is less likely to break apart in my media reactor. Worth the money! Thanks.
