Phos-Zorb 150 grams - 3 pk
Lowers phosphates - aquarium is algae free
My aquarium water is crystal clear and algae free. Since I have freshwater, my goal isn't to get my phosphate level down to 0 - test readings are always very low. Phosphates as such are not really harmful to freshwater fish. I use one pouch in my filter for a 75 gallon aquarium (not enough room for two). I feel this product is safer for my fish than some of the other products available. Nothing leaches out into the aquarium water. Love the low price here on Drs. Foster and Smith. I always have this on hand.
Note: only use this product is you do not use a phosphate buffer.

My aquariums have had algae blooms for a long time now. Tried everything. While shopping for light bulbs I saw this product. Understanding that algae blooms can be caused by phosphates and high organics, this product really caught my eye. Phos-Ban has been in my filters for 5 days now and my tank water looks beautiful. Crystal clear, oxygenated ! My fish also seem to be very happy.
I suggest anyone who is setting up a planted aquarium to use this product for awhile, if you are using planting substrate. I never had problems until I switched from river gravel to planting substrates.

Works as indicated
Just as the description of product says, phosphate levels drop by day five and continue for two to three months. Great control of algae!
