Right now I haven't had the need to use it in several weeks, I may just wait and see how high it will get. I will start again if it reaches .2
Thanks. I'm going to give this a try. If I can get my level down to around .1 I'm going to stop all dosing, including nopox in an attempt to get my ATS established

Lanthanum chloride binds with phosphate to form a gritty precipitate, albeit small, 10 microns. Into 5 micron sox, you can rig something, or risk damage to fish gills, tangs mainly, or filter feeders.
Run gfo after to try to keep low. Stop reef roids.
Didn't know that. I knew to dose into filter, also I heard clams are sensitive to Reef Roids.
