very clean carbon By Joe on 5/25/13Joe would recommend this product to a friendWorks great an produces almost no dust. I mix 150 mL of this carbon with the 50 mL of high capacity GFO and place in a reactor, and change out every couple of weeks. Works great.

A very satisfied customer By Glenn on 5/12/13Glenn would recommend this product to a friendIt's not always easy with so many well-made products to find a definitive product that outperforms others. This is one of those products.
Best carbon in the hobby By richard on 5/8/13richard would recommend this product to a friendI absolutely love this carbon. Almost no dust and highest surface area of any ive used. Crystal clear water! Highly recommend this product. Way to go BRS
Do not use in a reactor By Kat on 5/6/13Kat wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWhile ROX takes out the organics in the water much better than alternate carbon products, the particle size makes this a horrible choice for a reactor. In fact the product should clearly state "not for use in a reactor". I called BRS and switched to lignite small particle and could not be happier that most of the carbon is not being spit out. It might mean I have to use more product or change more frequently but better that than have carbon all over the place.
great carbon By Shaun on 5/6/13Shaun would recommend this product to a friendBy far the best carbon on the market. Its a very fine carbon and rinses in less than a minute and out last and out performs any other carbon.
Best carbon i have used to date!! By plasma327 on 5/6/13plasma327 would recommend this product to a friendVery good high quality carbon. Runs clear in 10 seconds and my tank water is crystal!!
Super Clear Water By Brad on 4/25/13Brad would recommend this product to a friendAdding 1 cup of ROX to my BRS media reactor clears 100 gallons within 24 hours. Removes yellow tinge from water.
Great carbon By Kyle on 4/23/13Kyle would recommend this product to a friendGreat carbon just have rinse it for a few seconds not minutes. Works great put some in a bag and through in with my live rock curing. It got rid of the smell.

How often do you change the carbon media? Is there any rule to know?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Alex,
In the case of carbon its best to change it every 2 weeks.
by james on January 14, 2013, @3:57 PM
when should be rox carbon be change.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey James,
We recommend changing carbon every 2 weeks. As a whole it is better to use less carbon and change it more often so that you can keep the parameters in the tank more stable.

How much does 1/2 gallon weigh?

How much of the ROX carbon do I need to run for a 210 gallon tank?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Mike,
Great question. For a 210 gallon tank you would be looking at about 1 1/3 cup. The easiest way to calculate how much of any of our carbons (or really any of our bulk materials) is to cheat and use our reef calculator. It can be found right here:

How often should you change out the carbon using BRS dual reactor in a 55 gallon tank
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Gary,
Great question. Carbon should always be changed every 2 weeks.
ROX 0.8 is a specialty carbon extruded into tiny, extremely hard pellets resulting in less dust and reducing the amount of fines released into the water. It features high numbers of large and small pores giving it all the advantages of both lignite and bituminous carbons. ROX 0.8 will make your water crystal clear faster with less material.
BRS purchases our carbon directly from the manufacturer so we can offer the best carbon at reasonable prices. While most companies claim their carbon is the best, our statement is backed with true science and real numbers. Carbon is not created equal. Different sizes, shapes, and materials will perform with drastically varying results.
