Default Phosphate RX

Anyone try to lower phosphates temporally with Phosphate RX? My ZEOvit system is able to slowly lower phosphates, but it's taking quite a bit of time. Local reefers swear by this as a one-time fix. It's basically Lanthanum(III) chloride with dosing instructions.

Here's a video on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x8bmqx9NOM

Just be patient. It's never a good idea to use po4 observers with zeovit. Ad long sf your dosing is correct and your system is well maintained po4 will go down on own.

Do you have any clams? Tridacna or such? I have had a bad very experience with lanthanum chloride an clams. I know the combination is possible, but it requires some extra precautions that I didn't take.

I do. 2 Maxima one Deresa. They seem to be fine but the lights are still low. I'll post here when lights come on and they are open, in about 2 hours.

I dosed last night. I know it's not recommend with ZEO but my tank has been suffering from high phosphates for 3+ months. I've tried several dosing options, water changes, etc, I needed to get it out before I lose more corals. I don't play on using this as a permanent solution and I already cleaned the skimmer and I have a rollermat that's turned over so all of the particulates are now out of the water.

I'm not doing it anymore.
Phosphates went from 0.4 to 0.07 overnight. I'll test tomorrow morning too and post another update about that to see if the number stuck, or if it just increased.
