hey, you might want to run a polypad to try and soak up the remaining metals in the water. or do a 100% water change, good thing your tanks are not huge.

Seachem makes two products that will help first is a rechargable one that is called purigen think it is one bag per 100-150g of water works like 300% better than carbon. The other item you can try is Cuprisorb it is for copper and heavy metals I think it can be recharged also but not for sure on that. They are pretty inexpensive but work awsome. I use the purigen now instead of carbon. It also clarifies your water and makes it look sooo much better. The pump when you say sen is that the full name? because I am about to order a pump and I want to make sure I stay away from that brand for sure...

That sucks! Honestly Ronen i don't think that wiped out your zoo collection. Down inside i hope it did because you found the problem.

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?

Im sure its not the same type or rust thou.
for one rowa and phosban take out thing ,where the rust off your mag drive and now sen pump are letting out rust into your tank ,.In not a chemist or anything ,JMO

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...
