Has anyone here experimented with it as a phosphate remover? It's in all the liquid phos removers available commercially for reef tanks as well as in bulk from pool stores.
Excellent article here from Coral mag:
and good thread here on RC:
It's a long read if you're interested.
I've been using the liquid remover from Blue Life whenever phos creeps up, but it's a tiny bottle and very expensive. GFO works well, but also not cheap on the volume of water I'm working with.
I've been dosing vodka for a year now and it does a fantastic job keeping nitrates down, but not quite as good with phos. I'm planning on running a slow and methodical experiment with Sea Klear pool phosphate remover to see the effectiveness and note any drawbacks. Aquatic Ecosystems actually sells it on their site for use in aquaculture and there is plenty of supporting documentation of it being safe. I'm always looking for ways to make this obsession more affordable. If anyone has tried this method of nutrient management please share...
