BRS Reef Saver is the only way to go - saving reefs and no leeching or curing
I like to start with base rock as well that way I can limit the pests coming into my tank. Although I do need to buy some pods to populate it.
How do you know the pukani leaches phosphates and the reef saver doesnt?
I have a tank full of pukani and never had problems with phosphates.
I have to agree - pukani definitely leaches phosphate. I have had it in 2 tanks. That is the reason I went with reef saver, which I can say with certainty does NOT leach anything.
Pukani also has to be cured.
if you have the time cycle rock brute container with no light just a heater and power head there is a lot of dead matter on it and that is what causes phosphates release
i didnt say it leaches phosphates. actually i disagree with you.
i have a tank full of pukani, no phosphate issues ever.
have you had both? How can you say that one leaches phosphates and one doesnt? have you done a study on this?
im not buying it.
I agree with dbo. In order for rock to leech phosphates, it would have to of been exposed to high phosphate levels for a long time in order to absorb them in the first place. Chances are if you had po4 problems, it was due to other issues, and not the pukani.
