Very satisfied as it works as others have mentioned. My Phosphates were always a struggle with a nano tank and no skimmer - this is the first media to actually make a noticeable difference,
Gradually coming down each week and happy with the results thus far!
Excellent GFO! By Pegasus on 7/27/2015

I started with BRS HC GFO, and if the day comes, I will end with it as well. Rinses clean almost immediately, and does an outstanding job of removing PO4. Levels stay near-undetectable, even with my heavy feeding habit. IMO, it's worth the extra cost to not change it as often. 15% water changes every two months of so, and my fish and corals are thriving! Highly recommended product!!!
Great phosphate remover! By Ae86oni on 7/22/2015

Good quality gfo! Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Keeps my phosphates in check. I did have 1 issue at first, but it was my fault. I was having an issue with it clumping together in less than a week, even though it got plenty of flow. After tons of research, I found out that having a low magnesium level will cause this to happen. Another tell tale sign of low magnesium is your pumps quickly getting covered in a calcium deposit. If you run a gfo reactor, make sure your magnesium level is in check. Will solve the problem!
Good GFO just very Expensive By Christopher on 7/15/2015
Christopher would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this GFO when i first started reef keeping. Keep phosphates at 0 always. However, it was a really cost to buy this. So I switched to RowaPhos, still good. But now have a small algae outbreak.. thinking about switch back! This GFO is amazing if you can afford!
Seems pretty great By Damon on 6/10/2015
Damon would recommend this product to a friend
Virtually no dust so rinsing is quite fast. Fluidizes very well and doesn't seem to break down like RowaPhos... Also seems to pull a bit more phos compared to RowaPhos but not sure if this is fact or perception. Overall, I like it!

I use this for phosphate removal on both my 150 reef and my 65 gallon predator tank. I usually change it out every 6 weeks and use a reactor for it. I check my phosphate's weekly using a Hanna checker and rarely do I get anything above a .02.
Good stuff By John on 4/11/2015

Seems to remove a little less PO4 than ROWAphos, but is much easier to use. Not much dust when rinsing before use. Works well in BRS deluxe reactor, slightly fluidized, without the sponges installed. Just started regenerating it, which seems to work well.

Using the high cap GFO. Can't compare it to standard, but it is very effective in PO4 removal. Definitely use a small amount when starting out. I used 1/2 of the recommended starting amount and built up slowly from there. Didn't have any issues

Great product, but a bit $$ By Submerge on 2/4/2015
Submerge would recommend this product to a friend
You get what you pay for. This GFO works well in a bag in the sump. It doesn't clump if kept in a high flow area. I just massage it around every few days for "general principle". It does a great job at keeping the phosphates low, about 1/10 of what they were before.
Amazing product! By David on 1/14/2015

I was continuing to have issues getting my Phosphates down to a negligible amount. I was dosing all sorts of products in an attempt to get the counts down. I installed a BRS Reactor with High Capacity GFO and crossed my fingers. I installed it three days ago and today my reading was 0.05! I can't say enough positive things about this product. Thank you BRS!
I'm sold, will never run without it. By Bruce on 12/14/2014
Bruce would recommend this product to a friend
Was having phosphate issues on my 90g mixed reef tank so I thought I'd give it a try after reading the other reviews....they were right! I am running a BRS single reactor and mix about 1 part High Capacity GFO & 2 parts BRS Premium ROX Carbon. After a week I was convinced my Hanna Checker was broken because it kept coming up 0 phosphates...there was nothing wrong with my Hanna. Been using this about 6 months now and have had no phosphate issues or no ill side effects. I didn't think I really needed the carbon but carbon is cheap and has it's benefits, and with the mix you don't have the hassle of tweaking the flow to try to maintain the right amount of tumble.

after 2months battle with algae, system running with algae scrubber, refugium, large protein skimmer, with all that running I decided to install and use this product, never thought it would work but after 5 days came back from vacation things really improved and all my sps corals starting to look happy and fish get to eat a little more food.
Thank you BRS!

I'm running a 360 gallon reef/fish tank, have a couple of large 7-8" plus tangs, and an 8" queen angel, plus some smaller fish
been having elevated phosphate levels, tried other reactors with no real effect,
bought this BRS Jumbo reactor, filled it with the recommended 6 cups of GFO hi capacity and VIOLLA within a WEEK, my phosphate levels dropped from a .90 average, down to a .20 average.... a nice decline about .10 each day.
This media REALLY does the trick

I used to suffer from high phosphates and had unsightly hair algae growing. I tried water changes and scrubbing rocks. I finally tried GFO which worked well, but was messy to work with. I decided to try the high capacity and I will never use anything else again. This stuff is awesome and is very clean to work with. Hats off to BRS for this product.

Very low dust unlike other types of GFO & you use less of it to achieve the same results which reduces stress on your pump. My PO4 levels are around 0.03 ppm using the HANNA CHECKER.

Regular vs Hi-Cap GFO By Drew on 5/11/2014

I goofed and ordered Regular GFO instead of the Hi-Cap that I normally order.
YES.... there is a difference.... My Phosphate levels have reacted accordingly.
I have double the PO4 than I normally have when using the Hi-Cap.

Let's just say I had a serious phosphate problem and tried several other medias. I put the recommended amount of GFO in a nylon sock and pumped water through it with a powerhead. It's a 750gal reef tank and the phospates had soared up to 2.0, after putting the GFO I tested the water roughly 3 days later and they were barely detectable. Can't say enough about this stuff and I will never use anything else!

nice and clean. I use in my reactor. With other brands took like 15 gallons until clean and clear water was following. With this high capacity only takes like 5 gallons to run clean. Love it and would recommend for all phosphate issues. Of course you cant beat the BRS service and price.

Running this with the ROX carbon through the BRS dual canister (one in each chamber) and I am shocked by the phosphate removal in less than 3 days.
Before running, our phosphate was 1.3 ppm in the Hannah meter. I am running less than recommended by the BRS calculator only because I didn't want to completely shock the system. However, after less than 3 days it's down to 0.03 ppm. Wow! I'm going to continue testing in another few days to see if it drops further. If not, I will bump up to the recommended level. Thanks, BRS for another couple of great products! Worth the price!

I'm running the GFO high capacity with an IM Minimax reactor on my nuvo 24 tank. I was getting some nasty hair algae after trying to fatten up some new fish. PO4 was around 0.08 and that was with Chemipure Elite in the media basket. After a few days by phosphates went down to 0.03 and last night I registered 0.00 using the Hanna low range checker. CUC is destroying the algae now and it take about 3 days before I get a noticeable green/brown film on the glass.
This seems to be a great value. Given the size of my tank and the rate the GFO is being used up, this is pretty affordable way to control phosphates. I highly recommend.

I've been using the brs standard gfo and this gfo makes a huge difference. I couldn't keep my phosphate under .06 with the standard stuff. Now I've got it down to .01 in only the first week of using this product! I'm very happy even though it's a little more money.

BRS' standard gfo is amazing... but this... this takes it to another level. My square 60 gallon salt tank was fill to the bring of slimy green algae. My brother then took this stuff... put it into my two reactors i recently bought and within a week the green disappeared. After 2 months, the water has remained crystal clear. The best time to get this is during their sale which is what we did during their black friday sale. Can't go wrong. Double the power of the standard stuff no joke!

I have used many different types of phosphate removal products and for cost, quanity and effectiveness you can't beat the high capacity version of this GFO. There are a few other products that are as effective but cost more and you get less of it. Why spend more?
This is the only practical GFO to use, hands down

Our LFS ran out of RowaPhos and it was going 3 weeks, I tried other gfos but they didn't do it, too much dust or they would just clump and not tumble, gave the high capacity a go and my tank is already looking better. I believe I will be sticking w this from here out.
