You can always order online but obviously you need them quick right now but if you have a local petsmart they almost always have it in stock. The purigen will be with the freshwater carbon area generally. The cuprisorb will only be in a SW fishstore.

I always wonder when I come across an incident regarding a small amount of rust resulting for either an impellar or the Mag screws that causes some fatalities in our tanks, because isn't Phosban & Rowaphos (ferric oxide hydroxide) a type of rust?

Ferric oxide hydroxide is not rust. But, it is a ferric molecule. Apparently it works to bind phosphate by staying in solution in ionic form (the oxide hydroxide part) to bind phosphate. The oxygen molecule rearranges its ionic bonds when it comes in contact to phosphate in order to bind it.

Rust IS another ferric molecule, but rust's chemical name Ferric oxide or Fe2O3.

That's about as much chemistry I can remember at 1:30am...
