RowaPhos is a patented and unique, man made ferric hydroxide material chemically engineered for the efficient removal of phosphates, arsenic and silicates from fresh and salt water aquariums.
RowaPhos should not be confused with natural materials, which are generally based on aluminium oxide, (zeolite) or even other iron based products which claim to be the same product from other manufacturers. RowaPhos is guaranteed to remove more phosphate than any other product worldwide.
In all aquariums phosphates feed nuisance algae which can overrun plants and expensive corals spoiling the aesthetics of the tank and in extreme cases killing its inhabitants. RowaPhos removes this food source thereby improving water conditions and promoting plant and coral growth. Within the reef aquarium, phosphates will also greatly affect the formation of coral skeletons by reducing calcification by over 50% and by inhibiting the deposition of strontium.
RowaPhos has the largest absorption ability of any phosphate product worldwide and will not leach back in to the water. This saves the need for immediate removal once the media is exhausted. The product is easy to use and will improve the water quality wherever Phosphate or Silicate is a problem.
