High-quality phosphate and silica removal media that can be used in a fluidized reactor for fresh and saltwater tanks.
Three Sizes Available:
- 500 mL
- 1000 mL

Aquaforest Phosphate Minus will remove phosphates and silica from the aquarium leading to overall better water quality and be removing a high-level food source for algae. Phosphate minus is essentially GFO that has been rinsed to remove any fines and debris.
We recommend starting with 100 mL (3.38 fl oz) of Phosphate Minus for every 27 gallons of Saltwater into any up flow reactor or media bag. For freshwater use 100 mL of Phosphate Minus per 54 gallons.
After implementing Phosphate Minus, you should test your phosphate levels for decreasing values. After a few weeks, your tanks phosphate levels will start to rise back up, and that is when the media should be replaced. With different feeding habits and bioloads, the length of time Phosphate Minus should be used will be different for each tank.
