Does this product come with a mesh bag to go in a high flow area instead of a reactor?

Thank you!

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.

  • Perfect for reactor By Melody on 3/29/2015

    I bought this for my carbon reactor. It helped clear my sand debris while I was setting up my tank. I already changed it once, and it rinses clear pretty quick.
  • Works as Expected By Russell on 3/4/2015

    Like the grain size and works well in the BRS reactor.
  • Nice and easy By Kovdad on 1/3/2015

    This carbon seems to be working fine would use again
  • crystal clear water By tonyz on 12/28/2014

    I use this carbon in my gfo and carbon reactor and love it
  • Yes this product worked quickly By Ted on 12/12/2014

    With in a couple of hours after installing according to the directions, noticed the yellow was gone. My coral look brighter and the overall water quaility looks great. Thank you for this product.
  • Great Price for a Great Product By David on 10/2/2014

    This is high quality Activated carbon at an incredible price! Other carbons of similar cost are not of the high quality of the Activated Carbon which BRS provides. I could not be happier with the product! It is the only Carbon I run in my reactors!
  • Crystal clear water! By Taia on 5/21/2014

    Wow! 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 3/30/2014

    great 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 2/26/2014

    use this stuff in my gfo reactor combo
  • Leaches Phosphates By Steeb on 2/13/2014

    This 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 1/29/2014

    Works 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 1/20/2014

    Good 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
