  • 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: 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: This works great. I have used it for years. I used it on my Ciclid tanks for years. I have a 90 gal Salt water tani and I add one pack per 2 months than check, if phosphates are rising, I replace it. 2 to 3 monthes live span. Best phosphate remover.

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.
