    I plan on ordering 10L of siporax 25mm off of amazon, this will run $165, but I only need ~5L of it. If someone else wants the other 5L I would love to split it and split the cost as this is the best price ive found it for!

    Thanks!

    This sucks as I got 10 liters a couple of months back and forcefully used it as I didnt have anyone to share it . BTW , siporax 25 mm works like magic bullet !!!

    I was like, what is Siporax, used the Google machine and now interested. Did some brief research, but looking for more. What is your motivation for this verse other media?

    What's the recommended amount of that per gallon or however it's figured? I've looked into getting some but didn't want to buy 10L.

    It works similar to marinepure, but doesn't leave aluminum which is why I'm leaning this way

    1L per 25 gallons is what I'm reading, but that's not an exact science from what I read. My build isngoing to have a 125 gallon display and 40 gallon sump. So I'd like to keep 6 litres or about that.

    Good to hear it works well for you!! Not many on this side of the pond are using it I guess

    Based on my limited research, says it helps with nitrates as well because of the density.

    Anybody have experience with this

    I should add that it takes a lot of time like 3 months for the media to be seeded and start reducing nitrates . This is what has been my experience . You might speed up the process by adding nopox but its not gonna happen overnight .
