    Just a quick question, how much orca phosphate guard do you run?
    I've been running about 125ml in my 120l for about a month and a half now and still getting quite a bit of algae growth. Should I increase the amount I'm using?
    According to the usage directions I might even be using too much, they are installed in a reactor jumping up about 2cms in the bottom of the reactor

    Instructions recommend the bomb method. A reactor inhibits cubes effectiveness.

    Remove half of the phos remover as the cubes remove phos too

    Keep it in a container and don't let it dry out. I can even recharge it for you if you want
