Works great! By Lyadeia on 8/24/2015Lyadeia would recommend this product to a friendEver since I started using Phos-Ban and changing it once a month, I have had no troubles with phosphates in my tank at all. It works as advertised and I will continue to buy it and recommend it to others.
Great By Shane on 7/27/2015Shane would recommend this product to a friendDoes exactly what it is suppose to do
Works as Advertised By shornik on 1/28/2015shornik would recommend this product to a friendWith the exception of having to dial in the flow on my reactor to avoid the fine dust of the Phos-Ban it works just great and has already reduced my Phosphates in half.
great media By shootermcgaven on 11/15/2014shootermcgaven would recommend this product to a friendWorks better than the BRS brand. The BRS brand has more fine particles that plug up the filter mesh quicker.
the best By mrribaudo on 11/20/2013mrribaudo would recommend this product to a friendI have tried many others, This one is the best in my 150 media reactor. Tumbles without channeling.

Much more friable than I expected, but very effective By tramboneplayer5 on 5/18/2013tramboneplayer5 would recommend this product to a friendI have not used GFO before, and had set my expectations based on the videos I had seen of GFO tumbling in a reactor. I think that would turn this into powder and it would all end up in the tank. The 1/3 lb container included a fine mesh nylon bag, which is perfect for this. I dumped 1/3 of this (50 grams) into the bag and put the bag in a canister filter and in less than two days the phosphates were no longer detectable with a Salifert kit. There is almost no algae in the tank after one week. This is good stuff.
Can I use the BRS reactor with this?

Great question! Yes, you can use this media in a BRS reactor! :-)

Can this be placed (in a bag) in a high flow area or does it have to be used in a reactor?
Question posted on Jun 3, 2017 1:11:00 PM
This product is designed to be tumbled and will be most effective when used this way, but so long as you are using moderate amounts of media and you can spread it out in a media bag in a higher flow area, you can still benefit from it in this way.

How often must this be changed when used in a PhosBan Reactor?
Question posted on Nov 25, 2013 9:13:00 AM
It depends on the amount of phosphate you have in your tank and you add to your tank. Typically it needs to be replaced every 4-6 weeks but if you add a lot of food it could be much less and if you almost never feed it could be much longer. Best thing to do is test your phosphates, when they start to rise its time to change your GFO.
