@Randy Holmes-Farley Hey Randy. Quick question maestro.

I mixed up some TriPhosphate as I want to bring my Nitrate down but my previous lanthanum use, causes my tank to suck down whatever phos i dose.

I get crazy cyano when the dosed po4 apparently drops off with the DIY Nopox. What i want to know, is; can i mix the phosphate solution into the DIY Nopox?


1ml of my Triphosphate mix raises my 65g tank .01ppm

If i can mix, how much Triphosphate could i add to the nopox?

I mix the DIY Nopox according to the threads.

Thanks brother.

If you add a bunch of water, you can certainly mix them. If you add insufficient water, the phosphate salt may be less soluble and may precipitate from the water/organic mixture. Trial and error, looking for white precipitate, will tell you if it works.

The mix might also grow bacteria though.
