Sorry, I've not seen it before.

This different box makes it look like a type of GFO:

Hi Randy,

Yes, you are right, it is some sort of GFO. I have observed the first draining with Water, the color of the water are somewhat like the rusty water. I start using it. but it seems that my water a bit yellowish. is this normal for the use of Iron based or GFO in treating Po4? if so, do I need to use carbon ti filtered the yelowish discoloration? if I use carbon, will this absorbed other good element of the water?

Please advises. thank you

Cheers,

MD

Some types of GFO need a lot of rinsing. I'd rinse it into the rinse water looks pretty clear, then it shouldn't impact the tank too much. If there are too many fine particles, that may be hard to achieve, however.
