BRS GFO high capacity works great on my tank. Nuisance algae is gone since I'm using this brand with BRS dual reactor. Just follow the recommended dosage and you're good to go.

Worth the money, works incredibly well By Amy on 11/10/2015

Bought this product to help 'rehab' a neglected tank. Phosphates were through the roof, too high to register with our Hanna checker (over 2.50ppm). Added HC GFO to a BRS dual reactor and saw IMMEDIATE results. Within 72 hours phosphate levels were well below 0.5ppm and still falling.
Needs no real rinsing, just let the first little bit of water that leaves the reactor flow through some floss and a filter sock, to collect the fines (or discard the water). Tumbles beautifully in a reactor, we've had no issues whatsoever with clumping or pieces breaking down into fines.
Lastly, when compared to regular GFO, this stuff is denser; at first glance it looks WAY more expensive, but compared by weight it's not a huge difference and it's worth it. We use regular GFO for maintaining non-problem tanks, but if you have a high-load tank, you're dealing with a major phosphate issue, repairing long-term neglect, it's worth laying out the cash for this stuff -- it's not a gimmick, it definitely works more intensely than the standard GFO.
Highest quality GFO I've ever found By Adam on 11/9/2015

No clumping, huge capacity, easy to work with, and keeps my phosphates in check like nothing else I've ever used. I really can't say enough about this product other than it is the best I've ever found. Period.

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

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

Been running the HIgh Capacity GFO for two years in two different tanks. On my 90gal. I have the BRS dual reactor with GFO and Carbon. Since running the HIgh Capacity GFO, my phosphate levels are non existant.

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!
