    Hi everyone
    I am very excited to join the site. I have been into marine fish for about 20 years. It is hard to believe how everything has changed over the years. I currently have a serious problem with phosphate levels and reducing it. Trying to sort out by doing frequent waterchanges but have to head down to Margate every time. Home base is Kokstad.KZN. Can anybody suggest a good phosphate remover.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
    Will post photos asap
    Cheers
    Van

    Welcome Van, I too have hit a PO4 issue, I bought some really cheap, and apparently rechargeable PO4 remover from VIP in Northgate. Cost me about R350 for 1KG. Took my PO4 from 0.25ppm to 0.01ppm in a few days.

    Hi Van

    I use RowaPhos in a Phosban reactor. Not sure if you can get it in SA but it works a treat. My Phos levels are zero. It also lasts a long time.

    Cheers
    Tim
