AquaMaxx Phosphate Out Granular Ferric Oxide Filter Media GFO - 1 Quart Information



AquaMaxx Phosphate Out is a granular ferric oxide adsorptive filter media that removes phosphate from aquarium water. Phosphate is a fuel for algae growth and can also inhibit a coral's ability to utilize calcium in water. Phosphate Out does not leach phosphate back into aquarium water after it has been absorbed by the media.

For best results, use AquaMaxx Phosphate Out inside a canister, hang-on back or other aquarium filtration system. Using a filter media bag is strongly recommended.

Phosphate Out can also be used in fluidized (up-flow) media reactors. A ball valve is required to regulate a slow flow rate through the filter to prevent granules from becoming pulverized.

Dosage
  • Rinse before use.
  • Use 1 gram per gallon for saltwater aquariums or 1 gram per 2 gallons for freshwater aquariums.
  • Test phosphate levels and replace media when levels begin to rise (approximately every 1-3 months).
  • As with all ferric oxide media, alkalinity levels may drop when used. Be sure to monitor alkalinity and adjust as needed

Phosphates Disappearing Product Review by TYRONE YOUNG (Posted on 10/24/12)

Excellent!

Comments: I'd been having a hair algae problem with my 90 gallon tank. After doing a water test I cut back on my fish feeding. I've been running Phosphate Out for about 5 days now and my phosphate level is 0.1. Phosphate Out is the real deal!

Excellent product Great price Product Review by ANDRES PORTILLO (Posted on 10/2/12)

Excellent!

Comments: I always purchased Two Little Fishies GFO just because it was made for my Two Little Fishies reactor. This products works really fast to lower your phosphates in your tank and it is just as good. Best part is you get alot more bang for your buck. I will definately keep purchasing this product. I am very satisfied and must tell everyone that reads this I started with a phosphate reading of 0.10 and now just 2 days later it is 0.00. Incredible stuff.

Comments: Rowa was getting too expensive. Have tried many other brands trying to find something close to RowaPhos' capability. Aquamaxx's product has so far worked. Good stuff
