I have a seaklear pool phosphate remover. The ingredients say lanthanum trichloride. Is this the same as just lanthanum chloride?

I have a 300 gallon tank and I have stubborn phosphates because of rocks I added. I have been using phosban and it’s expensive and not working.

Do have have a chemistry/biology background? How do you know so much? I’m inspired. I’m currently majoring in biology.
Yes, I have a BA double major in chemistry and biology, and a PhD in chemistry. :)
