    Just on the off chance anyone has some of these, could I please buy a couple of them?

    I really need to get rid of this brown GSP that has taken over my tank.

    Thanks.

    I hate to say that I have no idea where you can get these from. It's like they are not available in the UK. Maybe someone has some spare.

    I got one from the states, the GSP went and hadn't come back. The clove polyps did dissolve, but have started to come back. :-(

    I am just waiting on a PM to say yes I can have one etc

    I hope I can as there is so much brown GSP in my tank it is unreal. Short of taking the LR out and binning it, I am a bit stuck.

    I know - I must have emailed hundreds of people off foreign sites etc and had no replies or been let down.

    I have so much now of this GSP its taking over the LR and looks crap.

    I just cannot wait now to kill it all.

    I had a reply off the geezer that Larry had a link to in his thread.

    Which is a shame for anyone else who wants to try and locate some.

    I have one on the way to me via post, so as soon as it is here, I am going to throw it in and kill the sodding stuff.

    It arrived today but unfortunately RM have destroyed it, it was a powder not a tablet and by the looks of it, was not much left.

    I have poured what was left in the envelope, into the tank so hopefully it will still do the job.

    Once again thanks to Martin for sending it me.

    May as well keep a diary of what happens from here on in this thread.

    Day 1 - Added the powder, removed carbon, turned off skimmer, Brown GSP absoultely rampant. No effect so far.
