Seachem
Seachem PhosGuard Pond PhosGuard™ is a non-herbicidal, environmentally sound approach to the problem of phosphate control in ponds. It is a filter adsorbent that removes phosphates, silicates, and organic nutrients. A 2 Liter size treats over 600 US gallons. Pond PhosGuard™ is spherical. Its shape allows for maximum water flow through the media. Granular phosphate removers can become compacted, dramatically limiting their capacity to remove phosphate. If the media can’t come into contact with the water, it can’t remove phosphate from it. Pond PhosGuard™ is the only spherical phosphate remover on the market. ***Aluminum Oxide IS NOT REGENERABLE. No matter what anyone tells you, baking an aluminum oxide media does not restore its capacity to remove phosphate. This misconception comes from the product’s original intended use: industrial air drying. Obviously, if a product absorbs moisture, the best way to remove that moisture is to bake it out. However, that only removes the water, not the contaminants contained in that water.***

“phosphate remover-aluminium”

Works as stated. Cleaner than gfo but I don't like aluminum in the tank. No specific problem just not a metal I want. Iron is at least more common and natural.

“A great product”

So tired of reading the marine blogs on what they don't know(a lot)? All they say is how this leaches back into the tank when exhausted. According to seachem on the label and at their site it does not. This is easier for me to use than gfo. It has less friction and does not clog up in large use or r...Read More

I love this stuff. I used to stress out over nuisance algae showing up on my rock when my nitrates and phosphates read zero on my salifert test kits. Now whenever the algae starts to show up, I replace the stocking full of phosguard with a fresh one. Within a few days, any exposed rock in my tank...Read More

I've used this product for a while now and have had great results with it. This is used in the same way as many others and in my opinion works just as well as some of the more expensive ones giving you the same results. My phosphates are zero and being able to buy it in a larger quantity makes it ev...Read More
