    I use bio-chem zorb in my filter, my question is can I also at the same time use Phos-Zorb? Are they almost the same thing or what ? Looking at dr foster and smith item codes are akd 21695=biochem zorb, and cd21695 for the phos-zorb.
    Are they both good to use?Any input will be great.
    thanks
    Rose

    The Bio-Chem is just carbon and the Phos-zorb is just another brand of Phos-Guard.
    It'd probably be cheaper for you just get some Chemi-pure Elite.It basically combines the 2,except it uses ferric oxide to remove phosphates instead of an alum. based resin.

    Zippy,

    Take a look at THIS site.
    You can buy GFO or Carbon in bulk pellets for use in the Rena.
    They also sell a dual chamber system that works nice too if you want to have a constant dedicated system.

    Good Luck
