Salt Water

Control of nuisance algae in saltwater aquariums is a common problem for amateurs, beginners and experienced. For the proper control of algae, aquarium owners must take into account the specific factors that are unique to your aquarium. That said, one of the most common forms of algae control is the reduction of phosphates in their system.

Before seeing the phosphate reduction

If you are serious about combating the growth of algae, consider obtaining some other factors under common control, as well as:

You get the idea. Sometimes, however, you may get these factors under control everything possible and still have trouble blooming of algae in your aquarium.

As for phosphate control

If you have done everything possible to reduce algae growth, but you're not satisfied with the results, you can use anything to try to overcome that obstacle.

In these cases, I would recommend giving RowaPhos, and the use of a phosphate reactor, a serious look.

I recently dealt with a situation like this with my own aquarium 75 liters of salt water. I spent hours and hours trying of purified water cycle, water changes more often, cleaning equipment more often, upgrading to better quality lights and carefully monitoring My load of cattle. Even with all these efforts still could not get rid of pests diatoms had my tank for some time.

The ingredient secret that proved extremely useful when I finally decided to use it, it RowaPhos. Means of reducing phosphate is not the only solution to my problems. I conviced the RowaPhos would not work so well if they have good maintenance practices to start, but it was the secret ingredient that set me on top.

Why RowaPhos application works so well? It removes phosphates and silicates from the aquarium water, and not just leach into the water. Of the various media the removal of phosphates which I tried, which is RowaPhos made a strong impact on the amount of nuisance algae in my tank.

The application of RowaPhos correctly

What I learned about the implementation of RowaPhos in my aquarium setup?

I found that the use reactor works much better for me than using the media bags on my cartridge filter. I tried to go the route media bag, but the RowaPhos was too thin for my media bags. Using a fluidized bed reactor maintained RowaPhos in better contact with the water continuously, which seems do further work on the removal of phosphates. Using the media is likely that pockets of working for a lot of people, but for some reason was just annoying with cartridge filter settings currently being used.

You also want to make sure RowaPhos rinse before use in your aquarium. What does this mean? Basically, find a way to run the water purified through the media until the color thin oxide. Me RowaPhos like putting in the reactor, connect a water pump for use, the pump about 1 gallon of purified water through the fresh media inside the reactor, and then attach it to my tank, after all. Do not use tap water for washing, use of purified water for best results. I have a video on my web site, linked below, if you want to see the washing process in action.

Also, when it comes to storage or handling RowaPhos, not allow to dry. When you open a container RowaPhos almost seem wet, used coffee grounds. Your job is to ensure that it remains so, do not let it dry.


Another thing to keep in mind when using RowaPhos is that patience is key. It will not work overnight. It may be necessary even use it for a couple of months before we start looking at phosphate levels drop significantly.

In my situation, I had a tank that was full of phosphates and silicates at least a couple of years. To display RowaPhos long to throw all these things in my water, substrate and rocks. That is why I would suggest applying as soon RowaPhos as possible, and are used continuously.

Replacing the reactor in RowaPhos should occur every two months. At first you may want to replace the media communication on a more frequent basis if phosphate levels are abnormally high. If you regularly measure and control phosphate levels, will not take long for have an idea of how often you need to replace your media.

Buy in bulk

When RowaPhos buy buy a big container. I ended up paying more in the long run by buying small containers at once. I bought a large container immediately to the have more upfront costs, but would have saved money for a year or two.

Stick out

If you decide to use RowaPhos, stick it out and not give up or stop after a couple of weeks. Keep it going for a good period of time, several months, and you should have good results. Also — and this is important – not to neglect their duties of keeping aquariums and other practices just because you are using RowaPhos! Maintain your normal routine maintenance goes, and RowaPhos use to add that extra polish to your water.

Luke Petterson has been maintaining a saltwater aquarium for a few years now and has had quite a few good and bad experiences. Taking care of an aquarium takes patience and discipline, but it’s not intimidating at all if you do your research.
