    Hey guys, i know about lanthanum chloride, though never used it, but would like to know if some one has tried this method with a reactor. I know it depletes alk, but im sure it can be added. I would like to know the dosage of it per gallon. Iv read that u need to dissolve 6ml in 1liter ro water (is tht correct?) and then drip it slowly but how to inject into this system or can we jus drop in near the pump intake of the filter? Also i dont want to add too fast, i would like to add very little everyday and bring levels down in a week to a months time then continue with the drips for maintaining the level. I dont have high po4 as of now though, but planning to experiment for my future build. As im into chemical business, we get 99% pure lanthanum chloride powder (i guess, will still find out n update)

    Here is a commercial reactor for lanthanum but its way too over priced...
