Power Phos is a wet Iron-hydroxide based adsorber which safely removes silicates and phosphates from the aquarium. The pollutants are bound to the surface of Power Phos and will not be released again.
PowerPhos can maintain very low nutrient concentrations in your tank. Unwanted Algae growth will be stopped and corals will show their natural colours.
Instructions and Dosing recommendation:
Please do all changes in the aquarium carefully and slowly.
Start with 100 ml per 300 L of water.
After 5 days the dose can be increased up to 150 ml per 300 L of water.
Never use more than 200 ml for 300 L of water.
To obtain best results and maximize adsorbtion efficiency, place the material between two layers of filter wool or use a fluidized-bed-reactor.
Check phosphate concentration regularly with reliable test kits, e.g. from Salifert, Macherey & Nagel, or Merck / Rowa.
Do NOT use PowerPhos in tanks that already have very low phosphate concentrations.
If phosphate concentrations start to increase again, exchange PowerPhos for fresh material.
PowerPhos is suitable for fresh and seawater. The material can warm up when getting wet for the first time.
The red colouration of the water is caused by the fine dust attached to the adsorber. It is not harmful and vanishes quickly.
Do NOT rinse the adsorber before use.
Keep away from children.
Not to be used for animals used for food production.
Do not inhale, do not swallow.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
