Phosphate Remover

I am in the process of converting a Fluidized Bed Filter into a Phosphate Reactor and am looking for recommendations of media for it. I am down to Rowaphos or Phosban unless you guys have a better suggestion. I think I remember reading Phosban having an adverse reaction to Leather Corals, has anyone heard anything about this? Which would you pick and why?

Not true about Phosban. You are thinking of the aluminum based products. Between Rowaphos and Phosban there is really not much difference both work well. Randy
