API Phos-Zorb 5.25oz Information

  • Removes phosphate and silicate
  • Removes phosphate, a by-product of fish metabolism and decaying organic matter and an additive in some tap water supplies, aquarium products and filtration media
  • Will not remove trace elements
  • Will not affect pH
  • Treats up to 55 Gallons

Comments: I have used most of the Phosphate removal products on the market and they all seem to work the same. However, when I came across Phos-Zorb, I had to try it. All I can say is WOW! My algae growth is down and my tank looks great! My corals and fish are happy and that makes me VERY happy! It's all I use now!

Comments: After my heater had a poltergeist and cooked most of my coral, I developed a cyanobacterium overgrowth. Water changes just weren't enought to stabilize the water chems. Between the Phos-Zorb and the Nitrate reducing pads, the cyanobacterial growth is almost nill! Whew! Good product

Comments: Had bought a Rena Filstar XP3 to use in my 75 gallon tank with 20 gallon sump.I had a problem with Brown Hair Algae from using just filtered tap water with an additive. Installed 2 of the Phos-Zorb in the Filstar and within 2 days noticed the algae withering.In a week it was gone! Will continue to use this product and highly recommend.
