im tired of gfo and the expense. I've heard good things about these products if used properly with caition. meleve's reef has used this for years.  This is my idea for a safer method of lowering my phosphates any input would be greatly appreciated.

So i can open and close an arrangement of valves on the tank and isolate the maim tank and actually cycle the sump over and over within itself i could treat the sump with phosphate rx   and skim it out with out the main tank being affected. this would only treat 27 gal but i could do full streangth untill the water is clear again and repeat till no4 level is achieved with less harm to the fish.

I'm personally a big fan of Melevsreef [emoji16] and yes if he notices his phosphates going up he just doses Phosphate RX and calls it a day, I've heard of others on his Facebook page doing the same with success so yeah it works [emoji106]

Do any of u slow drip into skimmer. or cut your dosage from what the bottles recommend. my phosphates are close to 2ppm. According to phosphate e.   1ml lowers 1ppm for 4 gal. i have about 120 gal after rock and sand. so i should dose 29ml. but i heard if its to concentrated fish start gasping for air ! im trying to raise nitrate and lower phosphate does anybody know if this phosphate remover lowers nitrate or any other parameters

On my RSM 650 I dose about 20ml once a week, sometimes less, sometimes  more. I feed heavily and like to keep my phosphate below .10. As far nitrate, phosphate-e has no effect on the nitrate level in my tank.
