Phosphates naturally occur in seas and oceans, these organic chemicals are formed through accumulation of dead matter in the sea. However, because the sea has currents and is very wide, phosphate accumulation in those waters does not endanger aquatic creatures. For aquariums and fish tanks, it is a different story. Since these water tanks are generally small in size and does not have a natural current, phosphate accumulation easily occurs. When this is taken for granted, it can cause death to your pet.
