Hello forum members from MN. Trying to keep up with new developments in the hobby. Summer project is to automate tank. Currently working on chiller portion. Will automate daily water changes. Also main problem is phosphate buildup. Have done some experiments with Strontium. Will try to dose SrCL3
to remove phosphates. Seems to work ok in first rough try. Anyone trying this?
Thanks, glad to be able to post. Look forward to some interesting information.
Thanks again.

Welcome aboard Wahoo, There are lots of phosphate removal products on the market, the one you mention ive not heard of, which means nothing as i dont keep salt anymore, but im sure someone here will address your question shortly. I do know that Phosphates in source water is becoming an issue everywhere, Water treatment facilities are adding it as a means of coating the insides of badly deteriorated piping to save money on repairs. In the pool industry it is causing problems as well, because its a great food for algae. In that case borates are added, which doesnt remove the phosphates but kills algae by removing oxygen from the water, which obviously wont work well in the aquarium trade :)
