- Phosphate Minus - Aquaforest
High-quality phosphate and silica removal media that can be used in a fluidized reactor for fresh and saltwater tanks.
Three Sizes Available:
- 500 mL
- 1000 mL
- 5000 mL
Aquaforest Phosphate Minus will remove phosphates and silica from the aquarium leading to overall better water quality and be removing a high-level food source for algae. Phosphate minus is essentially GFO that has been rinsed to remove any fines and debris.
We recommend starting with 100 mL of Phosphate Minus for every 27 gallons (1000 mL) of Saltwater into any up flow reactor or media bag. For freshwater use 100 mL of Phosphate Minus per 54 gallons (2000 mL).
After implementing Phosphate Minus, you should test your phosphate levels for decreasing values. After a few weeks, your tanks phosphate levels will start to rise back up, and that is when the media should be replaced. With different feeding habits and bioloads, the length of time Phosphate Minus should be used will be different for each tank.
Small grain size like Rowa By Michael on 4/14/2017Michael wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAs a warning, the grain size is smaller than BRS's media bags. You can double or triple bag this GFO, but more than half of it will escape. You'll need a reactor that can handle fine grains. Sadly, it easily escapes through the foam on my reactor and a media bag is of limited use. If you have the right reactor, the price seems good.
5 star By Join the Revolution on 4/10/2017Join the Revolution would recommend this product to a friendWell, i used this for about 5 weeks, and bye bye HA. I decided to give this brand a chance and it has performed well. It takes time. Total system volume 95 gallon, 23 tablespoons in an Avast reactor. I also carbon dose a Zeo hybrid. Tried many types of GFO with minimal results. This or Two little fishies have done well under my tank specs. Will buy again.
Good product just like Rowa By IndoReef on 1/1/2017IndoReef would recommend this product to a friendGot a bunch of this stuff instead of Rowa as it was alot cheaper and was told it was even better.
Dont think its any better but it looks the same and works the same so i will be switching over to aqua forest due to the price and performance ratio
