      Pros: good phosphate removal
      Cons: May make your macroalgae stop growing/starve

      Very good product. I think it is a must for anyone with fish or SPS in their tanks. I run it 24/7. Requires good water flow around it. It may work so well that your macroalge in the refugium may starve and stop growing. It will not kill it, but slow it down significantly. At least mine has.

      Pros: Works really well in the phos-ban reactor
      Cons:

      I have used in in my reactor since day and have never had a cyan outbreak or hair outbreak. I can honestly say it is well worth the 65$ to get it up and running.

      Pros: Very effective and long lived and non-leaching.
      Cons: Must control flow so as not to tumble and pulverize

      When used in a reactor, this is an excellent choice for phos control. Very long-lived and no worries about changing it out too late and having leach back. Just must be careful not to pass water through it too fast, not only does it break up the oxide powder, but doesn't leave enough contact time to optimally adsorb phosphate and silicates. Also, some people put it in a mesh bag in the current flow. Bad idea. water goes around it instead of through it. One really needs a reactor to use it properly.
      Summary: Excellent product. Would recommend. Use the reactor's flow control!

      Pros: Works very well
      Cons: Expensive

      I had phosphate levels over 2 ppm until I purchased a 2 little fishies phosban reactor along with some phosban granules. After running it for only one night I woke up and tested my water for phosphates. It was already down to .5 ppm!! Awesome product and well worth the investment. Must be used with the reactor for best results...
