Just wondering about those people that use Phosguard, etc, to remove
phosphate in their tanks. Are these products "smart" enough to remove just
the bad organic kind, or does it remove all things with the letters "phosphate"
in it? I'm thinking it removes all phosphates regardless of what kind it is....
I'm still reading literature that report the perils of too much phosphate
causing algae, but they never delineate between organic and inorganic phosphates in their statements.
Well, I think I was the first hobbyist to suggest a difference, but certainly not the first scientist TYhat is a vfery old issue with them, but funny how no hobbyist ever looked into it, nor company that claimed to do "research".
I figure if you sell something, you might want to know about it and see if it's a relevant issue or not.
SeaChem is pretty good, but they do not have time to play with it like we do. They sell many things and try to look into the hobbyist needs and desires.
They now sell PO4 additives for planted tanks due to my research, rather than theirs..........as do all other fert producers for FW planted tanks....
