Ive bought two bricks for my next build. I spoke to the Brightwell rep at reefapalooza and he assured me the product would not leach Al. I hear from users that after using it Al levels do go up and that through time the brick turns itself into a pile of sand.

Im inclined not to use it

I've read a bunch of reviews on BRS about the crumbling and turning into sand issue. Although I've heard that the Marine Pure blocks are brittle as well, t seems like they are more sturdy and hold up better than the Xport blocks,

+1 The Xport NO3 bricks I tried crumbled quickly. Very disappointing.

I heard Sachem Matrix is a natual stone like product and works well. Anyone can attest to this?

open to other products and suggestions . . . heard the Sport might have gotten more firm in consistency in more recent batches?

maybe just stick with marine pure, almost like a cinder block:debi:
