    Hi Just2Bad,

    Nice to see you take a break from moderating on your own board ...
    It's not junk, it's un-assembled DIY!

    I know Oakville Reef Gallery carries it but that's the only one I found so far.

    Ivan...have you looked into this line of products...they are the talk of the Town and I can bet their popularity will take off in a matter of months. If you get it, let me know...I'll buy some and I know others are actively looking also.

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    Why are you guys not using Phosban ( Julian Sprung/Two Little Fish) which is iron based?

    Peluche is correct. Phosban is supposed to be just as good, although I have never used them myself. I'll get ReefMutt to chime in here as he uses them for his customers, I think.

    When people say the substrate becomes "a phosphate sink" or something like that....what is a "sink", how does it happen, and can these products remove that phosphate?
    thanks.

    Thien, I will let others answer your question about the phosphate sink. But when you ask if these products remove phosphates, be aware that there are some significant differences between these products, one of which is of major concern for reef tanks. Some exchange phosphate for alumini and many people have seen soft corals suffer because of it. Phosban and ROWaphos are better because they are iron based and do not harm soft corals. Many consider Phosban not as effective as Phosban, but others question this and enjoy its lower price.
