Phospha-Guard Granular Ferric Hydroxide (GFH) Phosphate, Silicate & Heavy Metal Absorber
- Rapidly and Effectively binds Phosphate, Silicate and Heavy-Metals
- Massive Surface area for greater performance and larger Phosphate removing Capacity
- Freshwater & Marine Use
This not only insures that no pH drops occur in the marine aquarium, but, the media will also absorb Phosphates, Silicates and heavy metals more aggressively. Phospha-Guard GFH is made specifically for aquarium water and has been designed to specifically address the problems and challenges that aquarium water generally has. Phospha-Guard GFH can also be regenerated 3 times over with Phospha-Guard RE-CYCLE making the product far more economical than other products in its category
Rinse with RO water before adding placing product into the tank to avoid discoloration of aquarium. Phospha-Guard GFH must be placed in a very high-flow area and is ideally used in a reactor, but, will also work in a MICRON ION-X 200-micron mesh bag that has been placed in a very high-flow area. If you are using a phosphate remover for the first time, you will use larger amounts initially. Use 0.5ml to 1ml per liter of aquarium water and once phosphate levels have reached below 0.10ppm, maintain with 0.25ml per liter of tank water. Some fines will be generated initially and will cause some cloudiness; this will not harm any animals and will clear in a few hours.
DO NOT LET PRODUCT DRY OUT as this will severely limit product performance, always keep Phospha-Guard GFH wet / moist. If Phospha-Guard GFH has been used in a media bag, massage bag gently every few days to rotate media and increase effectiveness. Always use a mechanical filter to keep organic wastes from covering the media as this will limit the products performance.
