That’s actually the biggest reason I’m dragging my feet with it, it’s a little of a pain to change it out regularly. Same reason why I don’t have filter socks on this tank.
Thats the reason I switched to PhosGuard

I use the Red Sea nylon mesh socks and I only have to clean it every 2-3 weeks.

Thanks @Chaswood79 for the coral viewer recommendation for taking pics. So here are some of my acros grown using GFO 24/7.

Very nice! Abe @Coral Euphoria also has the best videos, is he still using rowaphos?
I decided on option 3. GFO slowly in a reactor. Once I get down to .08 - .10 then I’m going to increase my feedings again and hopefully that will all stabilize around .08 - .10.

I think that sounds like a good plan. I can't stress enough how important it is to use just a small amount. I use 4 tablespoons for 112 gallon tank and it keeps me in the .08 range.
