    Most of us know that Seachem is a good brand, so to get to the point has anyone used this stuff with any success? I'm not talking about starting up tanks but rather like on would use Prodibio, in nutrient reduction with phosphates and nitrates.

    I used it to start up my tank but no experience with using it on a continuous basis.

    Falcon Prodibio does reduce phosphates. SIMS may still have stock.

    Use Both. Purigen takes out nasties and Stability helps with your biological filtration. They do different jobs.

    been using it for 3 months now on my nano and so far only good results.
    my measure is the growth of corals and appearance and for the price with so worth it

    Warren it is but I'm worried about the inconsistency of supply. I don't want to run out again as I got my tank to a nice low nutrient stage

    Tony i have already made up my mind i am going to be consistently running purigen in addition to phosphate remover. I believe Purigen has everything thats needed in 1 product bar phosphate removal.
