Hi, setting up a new 80g, low tech. Trying to understand use of carbon, read much on the pros and cons, then came across a recommendation for Aqualife CarboPhos. Does anyone use? Seems SeaChem carbon leaches phosphates and maybe this avoids that issue?

I do not use activated carbon in my tanks.
I have some on hand for removal of medicines, but have not used it for several years.
