Product Description

PhosNet™ is a granular ferric oxide (GFO) with high porosity, high surface area and high binding capacity. It will rapidly remove phosphates and silicates from both freshwater and saltwater and will not release them back into your aquarium. It exhibits stronger binding than most competing products and consequently can reduce phosphates and silicates to very low levels. PhosNet™ also offers less dust and thus is easier to use than most competing GFO products.

Directions

For best results, PhosNetâ„¢ 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. 

Use 50 g (½ 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 with either MultiTest® Phosphate or MultiTest® Silicate. If the concentration of the component you are trying to decrease has not dropped to around 0.02 mg/L, then replace the PhosNet™, otherwise leave in place until levels begin to climb again. As long as concentrations remain under control, the product is not exhausted. Over treating is not recommended. PhosNet™ is not an exchange resin and does not release anything into the water. It does not leach phosphate or silicate back into the water and may be removed, dried, and returned to service until exhausted. Continuous use of small quantities is better than intermittent use of larger quantities.

Seachem is owned and operated by hobbyists. All of our employees are hobbyists who maintain aquariums at home and at the office. Seachem itself was started because one such hobbyist found the available solutions to aquarists’ problems wanting. This resulted in Seachem’s very first product: Cupraplex™ (today known as Cupramine™). Thirty years later Seachem is still approaching old problems in a new way. We offer truly innovative solutions that work better than competing products and save money through increased efficiency and concentration. Our product lines are driven by our passion for the hobby and not necessarily by what is going to yield the highest profit margin. Of course this is a business, but it is a business built upon people’s passions. Nobody understands the passion and the problems of hobbyists more than other hobbyists.
