please post a link to whatever you are talking about..
A google search for "green phosphate media" doesn't pull up anything relevant..

Are you having a phosphate problem? What is your current phosphate test result?
Are you possibly overfeeding?

In general phosphate binders like GFO can work really well and very fast.. Too fast and well sometimes..

ok.. thought that might be it..
Its a filter mat with a phosphate binding resin..
Yes it works.. Its likely not as effective/fast acting as other phosphate media in a reactor though..
