Seachem Phosbond (250mL)
SeaChem PhosBond combines ferric oxide with alumina oxide into a singular material.
PhosBond is a revolutionary new product that combines the phosphate removing capabilities of both aluminum oxide and granular ferric oxide (GFO) into a singular material forming a synergistic effect.
It rapidly removes phosphates and silicates from saltwater and freshwater, combining the best of both types of phosphate removers. Its high porosity and surface area give it a large binding capacity, while its physical strength and integrity assures that it will not break down from mechanical stress.
*Safe for Fresh or Saltwater
*Safer to use than straight ferric oxide products when treating aquariums (such as Fluval ClearMax), as this synergistic combined product combines the safety of aluminum oxide and the higher phosphate removing capabilities of ferric oxide.
For best results, PhosBond™ should be rinsed before use and placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it but not so that it tumbles against itself in flow. It may be used in a canister filter, media chamber, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter. Use of a filter bag is recommended (such as the Lees).
Use 60 mL (¼ cup) for every 200 L (50 US gallons) saltwater or 400 L (100 US gallons) freshwater. Leave product in place for 4 days, then test phosphate or silicate concentrations. If the concentration of the component you are trying to decrease has not dropped to around 0.02 mg/L, then replace the PhosBond™, otherwise leave in place until levels begin to climb again.
