Remove phosphates from your reef tank with patented, man-made ferric hydroxide from RowaPhos. Phosphate removal in a reef tank is important because nuisance algae is fed by phosphates. This algae can overrun your expensive corals spoiling the aesthetics of the tank. Additionally, high phosphate levels can reduce the growth of coral skeletons.

  • Significant adsorption ability - 25 g of phosphate per kg of media

  • Once exhausted, will not leak back into the water

  • Easy to use and will improve the water quality by removing Phosphate

hi i just started using this product seems like pretty good stuff, i am measuring 0.07 is that considered good enough, i only keeping fish and soft corals, if i keep using it will it go down to zero eventually, also how much should i use for a 30 gallon tank instructions are a little vague, and when would you reccomend changing it out every 2 weeks?? do hard corals need absolute zero phosphate to survive? thanks for your help..
Question by: VAL on Feb 6, 2014 3:05:00 AM
Hi Val,
Keep using it and let it go as low as it can. Phosphates usually aren't limiting to micro algae until they get below .03, so that is generally the target number but even lower is better as phosphates have other negative side effects such as slowing coral skeleton growth, though in most cases the phosphate itself isn't toxic so much as it has a lot of undesirable side effects (like being algae food).

Does this come in a bag of some kind?
Question by: Kathy on Feb 7, 2014 11:02:00 AM
HI Kathy,
It comes in a small plastic container. Its best run in a fluidized bed reactor or at the very least you would want to put it in a filter sock.

Full Details

RowaPhos was developed in Germany for treating main water supplies. RowaPhos is a patented, man made ferric hydroxide material chemically engineered for the efficient removal of phosphates, arsenic and silicates from fresh and saltwater.

  • 100 g/100 mL RowaPhos will remove 3ppm of phosphate from 100 US gallons of saltwater.
  • 250 g/250 mL RowaPhos will remove 3ppm of phosphate from 250 US gallons of saltwater.
  • 500 g/500 mL RowaPhos will remove 3 ppm of phosphate from 500 US gallons of saltwater.
  • 1000g/ 1 L RowaPhos will remove 3 ppm of phosphate from 1000 US gallons of saltwater.
  • 5 kg/5 L RowaPhos will remove 3 ppm of phosphate from 4500 US gallons of saltwater.

RowaPhos Recommendation for Use:

  • Never wash the product unless fluidising.
  • It must be kept damp at all times, it is not as effective if it dries out therefore, replace the lid if not using all of the container.
  • Place the product between two layers of filter wool in a canister filter.
  • Do not sprinkle into the your reef tank.
  • Do not place it into water without surrounding it with filter wool
  • RowaPhos recommends that you use a small quantity and replace regularly rather than a large amount and replace infrequently.

  • Great product By Edward on 6/24/2015

    This thing is amazing, I was running a different product before and it took a while to get the same results with this one in just one day, amazing just make sure to rinse before using it
  • Awesome results By Tim on 2/21/2015

    Running in reactor. Started with .25 level and within one month results are .01. Was running rowaphos at a slight tumble, wasn't getting results so I opened ball valve up a little so I didn't have any dead spots in media and bam....phosphate levels dropped to .01.
  • From .20 to .02 By adam on 11/6/2014

    great stuff brought my phosphates down within 3 weeks of use.
  • Does what it's suppose to do! By Stephane on 6/6/2014

    Since i have a new tank and it's settling in, i was faced with a rapid green hair algea bloom. all the while i still had diatoms galore after 8 months. I bought some live stock to help but was losing the battle. As i did more research i found out that my cause was high phosphate. sure enough my levels were high. So i purchased a reactor and put BRS Bulk GFO Granular Ferric Oxide. I lowered the phosphates successfully to 0.02 and holding. The green hair algea is slowly dying off however my diatoms are blooming.

    I switched to this products are diatoms are indication that there is a high level of silicates. I've been using it for about 1 week now, and i have noticed a drastic reduction of silicates and my phosphates are at 0.01!

    Hopefully, a couple more weeks and ill be rid of the algea
  • A good decision By Trevor on 4/21/2014

    Deciding to run phosphate remover was one of the best decisions I made when setting up a reef tank. Rowaphos works well and lasts for a couple of months before it needs to be replaced.

    I know the product says not to rinse it, but I would never run this without rinsing it. The best way to change media is to combine it with a water change.
    -Remove old media and drain reactor
    -Add new media
    -Route the reactor effluent to a 5 gallon bucket
    -Turn on pump and run 5 gallons through it
    -Put 5 gallons of fresh saltwater back in your tank
    -Move reactor effluent back to sump and dump the red waste water

    If you don't rinse the media, you'll blow red particles all around the tank. Soft corals seem especially sensitive to it and will shrink up for a day.
  • fantastic By Jimsreeftank on 2/11/2014

    i went from phos of .5 to .2 in 18 hrs!!
  • good product works great ... By Ocean11 on 2/8/2014

    I just started using this product for a couple of weeks now and have brought my Phosphate readings dow from...0.50 to 0.07 good stuff
  • good product By VAL on 2/7/2014

    my phosphate levels were .50, i have now got it down to .07 in only a couple of weeks great product, in one of the reviiews above it says to rinse it ...you are not suppose to rinse it according to the instructions...
  • Algae disappears markedly after adding By Laura on 1/26/2014

    This is a great product, but make sure you rinse it thoroughly before you get it going in your tank!
  • Proven Po4 Remover By Jared on 11/14/2013

    This product is worth every penny. I am using it in a Pass through filter style system, with the included bag. getting ~250GPH on a 60 Gal Setup. when phosphate gets to .01 its time to replace. They recommend replacing a lesser amount more often. Depending on your phosphate levels.
  • My favorite By PMK on 6/17/2013

    I've run Rowaphos for about 6 years now and have always liked its results. You know when its time to replace when you see some hair starting or levels of phosphates show up in your testing. Its downside is price but you can really run rowaphos a long time and not have to worry about leaching. So you get its moneys worth. I'll be running it for more years to come I'm sure.
  • Great product By Todd on 5/24/2013

    I have been using this product for about 6 months and has always kept my phosphates reading 0. It is very dirty when you first fluidize but clears up pretty quickly. A little bit goes a long way. I change mine about every 3 months, it could possibly last longer but I change it before the phosphates start reading.
