ROWA®phos is a completely new filter material for eliminating phosphate, which was developed by the Weil Industrieanlagen GmbH company in Osnabrück, Germany.
Due to its unique chemistry, it has the ability to bind large quantities of phosphate by adsorption to its surface without negatively influencing the water in the aquarium in any way.
ROWAphos is the professional method of removing Phosphate and Silicate in all types of Aquariums and Ponds.
It has the largest absorption ability of any phosphate product and will not leach back in to the water.
ROWAphos is the most effective phosphate remover on the market today.
It is widely used in Europe and is now finding success in the United States.
ROWAphos was developed in Germany to reduce Phosphates in the Main Water Supply. It is being used in lakes and ponds and has been refined for the Aquarium Market.
ROWAphos will not only remove phosphates but will never release them back into the system.
It has the largest absorption ability of any phosphate product in the market today. This saves the need for immediate removal once the media is full.
The product is easy to use and will improve the water quality wherever Phosphate or Silicate is a problem. It is of interest to Marine and Reef Aquariums where its unrivalled capabilities have shown it to be extremely beneficial in the control of nuisance algae’s and the growth of hard corals.
Unlike other phosphate removal products, it does not shock the animals or cause problems when used regularly. In fact constant use of the product is recommended, as its abilities to control nuisance algae is a major benefit.

Great Product Review by Cameron
This comes in a very good secure packaging. It comes with a media bag, should you require one. The product is still moist. I have started using this product and my algae problems have decreased dramatically. (Posted on 8/31/2016)

Flat does the job Review by Pete

So far the best I have used Review by Kirk
Only bad thing to say about it is the dust is a lot but works so well that it still gets 5 stars. (Posted on 7/20/2014)
Unreal - With no risk Review by Ralph
I have done a lot of reading on this product and all I can say is it is unbelievable. There are no side effects on your reef. All the research I have done says that you can use four or five times the amount suggested with no side effects. You can dump it straight into your aquarium if you want(that would not help your phosphate problem but it would have no negative effects).
This stuff is expensive but it is the best at removing phosphate and not leeching back into your system. This is one of the best aquarium products I have ever used. If you have any more questions read this article...

What can I say..... It works great at removing phosphates. (Posted on 7/12/2012)
The Best....PERIOD! Review by Dennis
There is truely something different about RowaPhos. I've tried them all and always came back to Rowa. It costs more but it is indeed the best for removing phosphates and just as important (for me), silicates. Silicates are partialy responsible for the brown, dust coating on the glass and rocks. This product takes care of that. Good stuff. (Posted on 5/14/2012)
Rowa Phos Review by Mike
Works great. Used it in a Phos - Ban Reactor. A little goes a long way. Add gradually if you don't want a large immediate drop. Lasts a long time and has not leached phosphates back into the water. (Posted on 2/21/2012)
Performs as advertised Review by daryl
Set it up in a reactor and down went the PH readings. Sometimes difficult to find a product that lives up to its claims! (Posted on 1/25/2012)
Great Stuff Review by Mike
Works fabulous and a little goes a long way. Does not release phosphates or silicates back into the water once it is full. Works best in a reactor with a reasonably slow rate. Make sure you rinse it in RO water very well before adding to tank. I used the supplied mesh bag to rinse it in. (Posted on 12/27/2011)

GREAT GREAT GREAT Review by Ash
If you have phospate issues, or even if you don't, USE THIS PRODUCT...You will be happy with the results, and assuming you keep your other parameters up to standards, you wont have issues with phosphates...I recommend using it with the Magnavore Simplicity Reactor...That's just my recommendation (Posted on 12/8/2009)
Works Review by Wiz
I love this product! Works very well in removing phosphate. Id recommend this over many brands if you can afford it. But if you do buy it and use a reactor, rinse it very well because there is some nasties that come with it (just GFO dust). (Posted on 8/29/2008)
