    yeah it's good stuff. The 1-1.5ml dosage in a 650/g water volume keeps my PO4 around .03-.05 (hanna checker) also depending on how much frozen food I feed. I try to feed mostly pellets but female anthias only take frozen food.

    This stuff is potent so you got to be very careful - lots of testing and dosing very very small amounts.

    Ohh yeah, very careful. That’s exactly where I keep my PO4. Those are great numbers.

    Pellets are more nutrient dense. Frozen food is better after you drain it. Well, depending on the brand. Keeps your PO4 lower which as you know is ideal if your trying to keep more SPS.

    I wanna go SPS dominated with my new system, but I can’t help myself when I get in the stores. I just like everything.

    So mixed reef for me.

    I have a 125 and no sump just 2 big hook on pumps... I am still slowly removing the crushed coral and want a bare bottom. If I can not get my phosphates low enough doing this I might try Sea Klear phosphate remover.

    Sea Klear phosphate remover is reasonably priced and shipped on amazon.ca ...So RR man do you dose your tank at 50% per gallon of what you would do for your pool??
