*Powerful chemical filter media for total phosphate removal
*Commercial strength granulated ferric hydroxide filter media
*Helps maintain low phosphate levels in freshwater and saltwater aquariums

Bind phosphate permanently without leaching for total phosphate removal. Commercial strength granulated ferric hydroxide quickly removes phosphate, arsenic and heavy metals from the water column for cleaner, healthier aquariums. Powerful, nontoxic formulation can be used in a variety of applications to adsorb nutrients that cause scum safely and effectively. Ideal for both freshwater and marine applications. 300-micron filter media bag included for convenient application.

PhosPure® Suggested Use:
Freshwater: 1 tablespoon per 50 gallons of water, monthly.
Saltwater: 1 tablespoon per 25 gallons of water, monthly.

Active Ingredients:
100% granulated Ferric Hydroxide.

Directions for Use:
Place PhosPure in a fine mesh media bag (included), rinse thoroughly and place inside any filter. PhosPure can also be used in a media reactor for greater efficiency. Adjust flow rate through contact chamber so the granules do not tumble too vigorously.

For Aquariums: Use in canister filters, power filters, sumps, refugiums, corner filters, or next to uplift tube of undergravel filters. For Ponds: Use in filter or pond skimmer. NOTE: In filters that receive infrequent servicing or aquariums with aggressive scum, three times the suggested amount of PhosPure can be safely used at once.

Suggested Use:
For freshwater aquariums and ponds, use 1 tablespoon (Tbsp.) of PhosPure per 50-gallons of water, monthly. For saltwater aquariums or heavily stocked freshwater aquariums or ponds, use 1 Tbsp. per 25-gallons of water, monthly. For reef or freshwater-planted aquariums, use 1 Tbsp. per 20-gallons of water. Monitor phosphate levels with a test kit and maintain levels under 0.05 ppm. Replace media as necessary as phosphate levels begin to rise.

Store unused portion in original PhosPure container and close tightly. Do not freeze or store in extreme heat.

For aquarium and pond use only. Keep out of reach of children. Do not take internally. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. In case of eye contact, flush with water and seek medical attention.
