Lanthanum sulfate vs. Lanthanum chloride

Hi folks... trying to reduce phosphates in a batch of dry rock in a large brute that i am curing. found a few posts on lanthanum chloride, but can't seem to find the pure product here. i did find a pool phosphate remover with both lanthanum chloride and lanthanum sulfate... do you folks see any possible side effects of using this combination to precipitate phosphates out ?

thanks!

The pool product likely is fine. I would rinse the rock very well before adding it do a display, because the lanthanum will form a precipitate (lanthanum phosphate) that's worth keeping out of your tank.

Lanthanum sulfate vs. Lanthanum chloride

In case anyone is wondering - used the product that has both Lanthanum sulfate and lanthanum chloride to cure my dry pukani (product called phosfree in Canada). It really helped to remove phosphates that were leaching from dry rock; after about a 28 days of regular cure, would get 20+ ppm phosphates accumulating after a few days of changing water. Added the lc and ls product to cure and let it sit for a week and a half, gave it a really good rinse and brush and put it in fresh mixed saltwater and phosphates were undetectable. Added it to new tank build and moved some of my fish/corals/snails/crabs/shrimp from an established tank. Still a bit early (wk and half) but all animals are alive and well and phosphates are still undetectable.

Sounds like it worked very well! That's good news.
