Feed Your Fish and Not Your Algae
Rowaphos is the professional method of removing Phosphate and Silicate in all types of Aquariums and Ponds.
RowaPhos is guaranteed to remove more phosphate than any other product worldwide.
In freshwater or salt water aquariums phosphates will feed nuisance algae which can overrun plants and expensive corals spoiling the aesthetics of the tank and in extreme cases killing its inhabitants.
Within the reef aquarium, phosphates will greatly affect the formation of coral skeletons by reducing calcification by over 50% and by inhibiting the deposition of strontium. It is suggested by Borneman that phosphates are a direct poison to calcification.
RowaPhos is a unique and patented , man made ferric hydroxide material chemically engineered for the efficient removal of phosphates, arsenic and silicates from fresh and salt water, having initially been developed in Germany for treating mains water supplies.
RowaPhos should not be confused with natural materials, which are generally based on aluminium oxide, (zeolite) or even other iron based products which claim to be the same product from other manufacturers.
Only Rowa make RowaPhos and any other iron based material is simply a copy with a completely different chemical structure and properties. RowaPhos has the largest absorption ability of any phosphate product worldwide and will not leach back in to the water. This saves the need for immediate removal once the media is exhausted. 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.
Constant use of the product is recommended, as its abilities to control nuisance algae is a major benefit.
In an independent series of tests carried out by the Berlin Technical University on the five most commonly used phosphate removers at that time, RowaPhos was found to be the most efficient in removing phosphate from water. Other medias tested reached only to 30 40 % of its removal capacity by weight. Additionally RowaPhos was found to continue to remove phosphates at lower concentrations and had a higher maximum holding capacity.
Since these tests many ferric products have been brought out which ride on the performance of the Rowa product and some even claim to be the same, however RowaPhos UNIQUE and its patented manufacturing process cannot be copied.
Tips for Use:
To obtain the best results from RowaPhos and to keep your tank at zero phosphate levels it is important when starting up a new tank or a tank with phosphate levels in that has matured, to use RowaPhos on a permanent basis.
RowaPhos will absorb phosphate, silicates and arsenic. It is entirely safe in both fresh and saltwater systems. It does not release, when exhausted, any chemicals back into the water. ie phosphate, silicates or arsenic.
It is currently being used on a saltwater fish tank and has been for the last four years with five times the recommended requirement and it is only changed when phosphate levels coming out of the canister, where it is placed, begin to rise after approximately six to seven months.
How to use:
Unfortunately, most phosphate test kits available are not capable of reading low levels of phosphate. It is necessary in a saltwater fish tank to always keep your levels below 0.015ppm

Coverage - The A360X Refugium includes a Narrow Reflector that will prevent unwanted light spillage in your sump. The Narrow Reflector attachment increases the penetration of the light and reduces spread to 24"x 24" from the standard 36" x 36".
Blue Spectrum - The Blue spectrum accelerates the growth of a plant at any stage by encouraging prolific stem extension. Use this for refugiums with predominantly soft corals (pulsing xenia, etc).
Grow Spectrum - The Grow spectrum is designed to produce vegetative growth throughout the life cycles of many different Macroalgaes. Use this for refugiums with mostly macroalgae (including, but not limited to, cheato, caulerpa, gracilaria, and dragon breath).
Bloom Spectrum - The Bloom spectrum boosts yield by encouraging flowering during the plants crucial reproductive stage. Use this to promote growth on any type of flowering plant.
Red Spectrum - The Red spectrum is designed to facilitate tissue culture and cloning by promoting maximum root growth at any point in a plant’s life cycle. This wavelength is most commonly used to increase the plant's productivity and quality of harvest in terrestrial plants.
Daylight Mode - Use the pure white daylight mode to illuminate the sump for cleaning or taking photos.
Green Light Mode - Use the green light to monitor plants without disrupting the plant’s growth cycle. This spectrum is only available with the WiFi Dongle.
Adjustable - Switch the spectrum depending on the phase of the plant growth.
Increased Durability - Designed for the harsh sump environments, the A360 Refugium is water-resistant.
Vortex Fan - Our innovative heat management system enhances longevity and cooling efficiency.
Compatible with the Kessil WiFi Dongle. Daisy-chained the A360X Refugium main tank lights for seamless independent control from a single device. Spectral Controller-X support coming soon.
Dashboard - A summary page to see the status of all the connected Dongles and A360Xs in one glance.
Group - Dongles and daisy-chained A360Xs can be easily grouped and assigned different programs for advanced settings.
Manual Mode - Directly adjust color and intensity for on-demand light customization.
Quick Set - Program the A360X Refugium to turn on overnight while primary tank lights are inactive.
Dimensions - 2.67" x 4.3" / 6.8cm x 11cm (H x D)
Spectrum - Blue, Grow, Bloom, Red, Daylight, Green
Components: 2 suction cups 2 practice pipes. Rubber for bending
Diameter 8 mm
~ 50liter tank
HOW TO BEND FOR EXTEND TYPE
1. Insert rubber cord into the pipe
2. Heat by turning the pipe to the width of 1 ~ 2cm of the bending point
3. Bend the pipe as you like against the top of tank
4. Remove the rubber after 20 seconds setting
※ For finer bubbles, put it in water for 10 minute before use.
※ If the bubble become bigger, put diffuser in bleach for 5 minute. After that, remove the bleach and use it.
※ Keep out of reach of children and pet.
PRECAUTION FOR EXTEND TYPE
※ Be careful of fire or burns during bending
※ Heating the fire to only one point can cause incomplete results
※ Once bended or heated, there is no return or compensation.
※ If the pipe is deformed once, it may be damaged by applying force or reheating.
