Have you got any really good tips you can pass on to the forum members? If you have, post them here! :)

 

Rowaphos tip! Rinse it in reverse osmosis water before use to get rid of the brown dust. Do not rinse under tap water as it will absorb phosphates before you even get it in your tank and it's capacity to absorb further phosphates will be greatly reduced.

Always use reverse osmosis water, and if possible, by your own RO unit to produce your own.

An auto top up unit will make your life so much easier and keep your salinity stable. Once you've used one, you'll wonder how you ever managed without one! :)

if you have an auto-topup unit with a float switch then clean it once a month, this will prevent the thing sticking and thus flooding your tank, i know from experience :D
