View Full Version : Fluval ClearMax Phosphate remover (formally Phos-X, I think)

I recently replaced the ChemiPure elite in my canister filter with Fluval Clearmax and Fluval carbon, because I had a gift card to a large chain pet store to burn.

After adding them, I came across a number of reviews on reef forums concerning their potential issues when used in reef settings, particularly with sessile inverts.

All of my corals are LPS, and after a few days of use, everything appears to be fine. Does anyone have any experience with this product?

Any input would be MUCH appreciated, as I tend to obsess... :wildone:

The picture looks a lot like GFO. This thread discusses the same product:


I haven't found any more information on that particular media.

Thanks... for now I'll wait and see, while I bite my nails. This being my first reef tank..
