Crystal clear water! By Taia on 5/21/2014Taia would recommend this product to a friendWow! BRS has really delivered! I got the single carbon reactor, and the five gallon bucket of carbon. The difference in my water clarity is like night and day! I am already noticing more coralline growth, improved colors of my corals and my zoos have opened up very well. I was equally impressed by the packaging, and the surprisingly small amount of fines in a container this size. Well done BRS!
good quality and quantity at a low price By mario on 3/30/2014mario would recommend this product to a friendgreat carbon at great price would recommend to anyone looking for great carbon. can use in media bag if you don't run a reactor
great product By chris on 2/26/2014chris would recommend this product to a frienduse this stuff in my gfo reactor combo
Leaches Phosphates By Steeb on 2/13/2014Steeb wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis product was treated with phosphates and leaches them into the water. Got the email from BRS to prove it. Don't waste your money on this if you're starting a reef tank. It does clear the water, but promotes algae growth. Go with ESV carbon, no phosphates.
Good Carbon for the price By Joe on 1/29/2014Joe would recommend this product to a friendWorks well and the price is good. I personally like the cheaper carbon almost as well as the more expensive stuff so I always purchase this. I've been doing this for many years and this carbon does the trick.
Good Carbon By Steve on 1/20/2014Steve would recommend this product to a friendGood inexpensive carbon product. I use it in the felt drawstring bags also purchased from BRS. Cleans the cloudiness out of the water in my reef tank after a few hours. Definitely recomment this product
Great Product Great Price By Crystal on 12/28/2013Crystal would recommend this product to a friendSeems to have less dust and faster rinse time than "equivalent" brands that are usually found at LFS. Better, it costs less than half as much!
Great Carbon! By Jake on 12/7/2013Jake would recommend this product to a friendBought the gallon size and and is perfect for plenty of refills on my BRS dual reactor fully filled.
Black gold! By Travis on 12/4/2013Travis would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is perfect for my refugium! I rinsed the dust off with a little RO water and it's keeping the water crystal clear! I get it from BRS because it would easily cost me double from my over priced local fish store!
Great quality By Yunier on 8/6/2013Yunier would recommend this product to a friendProduct is great quality would buy it again thank you.
good stuff By ebifountains on 5/27/2013ebifountains would recommend this product to a friendwe use this carbon as filter material in our custom made high class ceramic pet drinking fountains we sell all over the globe. We like it, then it's low on dust and keeps the water nice and clear for weeks.
good shit By dimitri on 4/18/2013dimitri would recommend this product to a friendi love it its cheap and there is soo much of it if i tried to buy a gallon of carbon at my aquarium store ( i live in souther california btw) it would cost at least 20 to 25 dollars. plus if bought the dual reactor and it is so much better running carbon through a reactor than through a bag. chemipure aint got nothing on my BRS dual reactor. maybe i will buy some chemi pure and run it through my reactor i saw it on a youtube video it seems legit.

Does this product come with a mesh bag to go in a high flow area instead of a reactor?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Robert,
This is just the bulk carbon. If your deciding to just use a filter sock that would be purchased separately and your best bet would be the 4x8 mesh drawstring filter sock which you can find at the link below.
