    Does some one here has the reef savers rock from brs ?? , my biggest questions is does it leach a lot of phosphate?

    Same experience. My gha was horrific for a bit.... To the point I had to take rocks out and scrape them.


    Perhaps not only the rock leaching but it didn't help

    Theoretically yes muriatic acid bath should help.. Stuff on national forums about it

    Yea I read a couple of threads about that, I think I will order the rock and then do a muriatic acid bath rinsed and let it dry for a couple days

    Just throwing this out there but the reef saver rock isn't porous. Brs does a test where they soak their rock in water and test the weight after. and reef saver did the worst. So not the best rock for a saltwater aquarium.

    It works it has for many aquarium and is a popular choice due to cost. Perhaps look at adding some marinepure to the sumo for added filtration. But if you can afford more than upgrade.

    I think I will go with the 50 lbs box of fiji dry rock and a block of marinepure pure I already have 40 pounds of live rock ,I think that will be enough for my 90 gallon

    I would watch the you tube from Brs on live rock. Very informative.
