Rated 5 out of 5 by knishi A good upgrade to the blue filter pad
It helps keep my phosphates down without the mess of loose phosphate media. It's also thicker and more dense than a blue filter pad so it filters better and lasts longer. Good quality filter pad overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CorallineAlgae Easy way to remove Phosphate
I've used these pads off and on in my mini reef tank for about 8 months. Whenever I start to see excess algae I add one into my filter and leave it there for about a month (rinsing it out weekly) before tossing it. When my phosphate tests show the levels have risen, or algae starts to come back, I cut another pad to put in the filter. The algae starts to die back within days.
Phosphate pads are the easiest way to remove phosphate, but they aren't always a good value. This is a great value for a large pad. You don't need a pump driven reactor, and you don't have to flush it like GFO. Just put it in an area of high flow and rinse it out as needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Killip This product works good!
Being a padded media this product runs best in a canister filter. It takes a couple change outs but worth the waiting process!
