    I use it from time to time, but not consistently. I probably should though.

    I always run a HOB filter with carbon just in case. I want that back up in case I overfeed, something dies, or whatever else, but I converted from fw to sw so carbon is just something that I beleive in. I would have some on hand though in case something goes haywire. IMHO that is.

    Found out my phosphate test kit expired... my LFS charges $5 for them to test the sample and around $20 bucks for a test kit. If I end up buying another kit, I'll test and post the results here.
