Where to buy lanthanum chloride and small enough filter socks?

Correct me if I am wrong but I think most people are using Seaklear phosphate reducer for their lanthanum chloride...just cant find it online for sell?

Also, where is best place to get some filter socks small enough for this? (5 micron, 10 micron, etc) Does it matter if it is felt or mesh? Id prefer larger bags since my drain pipes are pretty large/long.

Thanks!

Either 5 or 10 microns should be fine, and I think the same is true for felt vs mesh. I haven't used this type of product, so I don't know where to get it.

I got the Seaklear and the filter sock both on ebay(different US sellers) so, check ebay

I don't think that the seachem media filter bag would work. Pretty sure it's more like 100 microns or more.

If you google Seaklear phosphate remover. You'll find lots of places that sell this stuff in the US and ship. I'm from Canada and had to buy from the US. Seaklear was nowhere to be found in Canada.
Here's a place that sells the Seaklear Aquaria(it's the same thing as the seaklear for pools) and they sell filter socks too. http://www.aquaticeco.com/
