    Hi guys

    What's the best way to run phosphaguard. Have it in stocking but seems to be escaping and laying in the sump.

    Thanks. I have a fluidized bed filter(similar to reactor) that I was running phosgaurd in and just I could use the same instead buying phosphate reactor.

    Maybe I should just change the pump as the filter works exactly like reactor. What's the recommended flow for phosphaguard

    No real recommended flow rate. It just musnt tumble too as it has a tendency to break up. So dont fluidise it like you would GFO based phospahate media

    There are two products referred to here :
    phossphaguard and phosguard.
    Phosphaguard is Orca - GFO and can tumble in a reactor
    phosguard is seachem - aluminium based and it must be in high water flow , but not not tumble vigorously because the tiny particles of aluminium arnt liked by the mushrooms and other softies.
