High quality if you're willing to pay more By Aaron on 1/22/2012

I'm very happy with this product. It rinses clean quickly and does what it's supposed to do. This is comparable to other high quality brands, but at a slightly lower price (I wish it could be just a little lower or get a little more). I'll buy more in the future.

Great stuff By ange062 on 1/19/2012

This GFO works just as claimed. It's a nice small size comparable to ROX0.8 carbon, which makes plumping the reactors a little easier since both media's tumble at similar rates so you can use the same pump and flow rate. It's very effective at phosphate removal and the media lasts much longer then any other GFO I have tried. It can cause a drop in pH, so introduce to your system slowly to prevent any issues if just beginning use.
I have noticed that it won't drop phosphate levels as drastically as some other types of media I have used, but the tradeoff is that those other media's expire much quicker. The BRS HC GFO works great as a long term maintenance solution once you have phosphates to a controllable level.

In MHO all GFO is overpriced, which is why it only got three stars for value. It took my phosphates from .12 to .04 (Hanna) in one week. Very pleased with the performance of this GFO.

I'm reef-habilitating my tank that I've neglected for a long time. My phosphate levels were incredibly high. I've only been using it for a little over a week and my phosphate levels have dropped like a rock.

This stuff is great! It is 1st time I've been running GFO but this product is awesome. I have let things go for a while so had pretty high phosphates once I finally checked. Close to 0.5. Within 3 days of putting this stuff on line they are down to 0.09. Will see what happens in a week.

I tried the normal GFO and didnt like it as much as this product. H GFO didnt release a lot of dust in my tank and drop my po4 fast with half of the amount I suppose to put in as normal GFO.
Best GFO By Jason on 11/27/2011

Simply the best GFO product I have used, I mix it with carbon in a reactor, does not clump or degrade like some of the others I have tried.

i was using a phosban reactor w/ regular granuals and my phosphate was around 0.22 to .19 and with gfo high capacity it has been at 0.04
It works good By Joe on 11/23/2011
Joe would recommend this product to a friend
It is defiantly denser then the regular gfo. Price wise it is twice as expensive. It works good and removes phosphates. Does it do it better then the regular, Probably. I dont know how well, i can only assume brs did the research for me and i am assuming they are right.
Great Product! By Paul on 11/22/2011

A little goes a long way. Mixed this with ROX 0.8 Carbon (so GFO won't stick together), put into fine mesh bag, and used it like that until I received GFO reactor. Actually got good result's that way.

Not Expensive When Compared to LFS By Airvin on 9/16/2011
Airvin would recommend this product to a friend
I have been fighting high phoshates, the LFS product helped but I could rinse it for over an hour and still get fines. This product was passing clear water in under 30 seconds. The price is also a lot cheaper compared to the LFS who sell the standard GFO for more per volume than BRS high capacity GFO. My phosphates are dropping faster with the deluxe brs reactor, compared to just floating a bag. My coral are starting to glow and my macro algae is showing some really deep color.

I was having a hard time deciding between regular GFO and HGFO mainly because of price. The reef calculator helped me decide. I could avoid using a jumbo reactor with the HGFO which saves me space. After using this for two weeks my phosphates were at 0. That's down from 2ppm. Excellent product.

I have a 1000 gallon tank. Heavy Bio load, I like feeding and I do weekly water changes and use RO-DI water but the PO4 levels were always high until I bought my BRS single chamber reactor and started using GFO- High Capacity Ferric Oxide.

When your ready to setup your GFO reactor's performance this product will not let you down. I have this running in my Deluxe GFO reactor with MAXIJEt 1200. IMO BRS's recommendations are the best choice. Watch the videos on BRS, they are awesome.

This is hands down the most effective reactor media to control phosphate levels. It works out to be less expensive due to the absorption capacity.

does the trick By cocugreek5 on 5/1/2011
cocugreek5 would recommend this product to a friend
I had high phosphates around 1. This is the first gfo I have used and based on my present experience and those of others, I won't be changing anytime soon. That goes for the gfo as well which holds up well and the water out of the reactor is still less than the tank itself after 2 weeks. Keep in mind this is the first time I ran a phosphate remover in the 6 years of the tank. The hc gfo is great for these situations where there is real severe phosphate problems. It does great in a single reactor and perfect if your tank is under 125 gallons. With the regular gfo and lets say a 150 you would have to go with brs' jumbo reactor. I wish it was cheaper but you get what you pay for.

Now that my tank is established and I'm slowly introducing different livestock I noticed that the zoanthids stopped opening up. I read online and the blogs were saying that high phosphate levels in the water would stop the zoanthids from opening. I purchased 3.5 Pounds Bulk GFO High Capacity Ferric Oxide and a reactor from BRS and within a week of having the GFO filtering the water the Zoanthids started to open. Now a month later the Zoas are in full bloom and look amazing.

Working like it should! By June on 2/19/2011
June would recommend this product to a friend
Purchased this for our 180 gal SPS dominant/fish heavy aquarium along with the Hanna meter. Added in 1 C of this stuff to our Warner Marine reactor (BRS calculator rec'd 1.44 C) but I wanted to start low so as to not freak out the corals. In about 36 hours, PO4 went from 0.58 to 0.26. Any small amounts of red cyano or green that were on the rocks or glass are going away! Going to up the dosage today or tomorrow to get ALL the PO4 outta there! Wonderful product. I have tried Two Little Fishes before, and it worked OK, but I think this product is so much better and for the price/amount you get, you can't beat it. Going to add it to our 24 gal JBJ nano as a precautionary. Thank you BRS!!

I personally found GFO HC is better than regular GFC. With the same amount, it seems to get rid of the cyano I have, while regular GFO just stop the cyano from spreading but not totally destroying it.
Allowed me to avoid having to use a Jumbo reactor... By Loknar28 on 12/6/2010
Loknar28 would recommend this product to a friend
I wasn't sure about using this instead of the regular GFO, but when you figure that you only have to use half as much it is worth the price difference. According to the reef calculator I would have had to use almost 4 cups of the regular stuff for my 240G. So I decided to get the HC GFO with a deluxe standard size reactor instead of the jumbo. Also the fines seemed to clear much quicker.
