View Full Version : home remedies for keeping alkalinity down or phospates

I was just wondering is there any home remedies that work well on phospates or alkalinity. I have heard different things like useing baking soda or some other home products in your tank for different things but have never tried. I have got phosphate problems so I have ordered a phosban reactor and some media to go in it. What are home remedies and what do they do or control. This could be a good thread for everyone to post their home remedies and ideas. So lets see some posting.

Keeping a clean tank and not over-stocking/feeding were my only remedies besides my TLF phosban reactor:)
