    Should one run Phosguard on a permanent basis in the tank, or only when Phospahte readings are high?

    I have read about a few guys here running Phosguard in their filter.

    You can run it permanently with no issues as it will only absorb phosphates if there are any present. Dont run too much and follow the recommended dose for your tank size.

    Rather be proactive than have problems down the line. Change it when you notice your phosphate readings rising from a stable reading

    I also run it all the time and it does no harm.
