How much carbon should I use? What's the carbon to gallon ratio for this carbon? Planning on putting it my my BRS dual reactor. Thanks!!
Question by: Robert on Feb 28, 2014 5:15:00 PM
Hey Robert,
With the ROX carbon it comes out to 1 tablespoon per 10g of water. Or if you want to do the math the easy way, use the reef calculator found at this link:

How long will the media brs GFO high capacity & Premium POX 0.8 carbon be changed?
Question by: wing on Jan 20, 2014 9:17:00 AM
Its best to change carbon every two weeks. GFO on the other hand will vary depending on the amount of phosphates in the water. No need to change it until its depleted. Typically this is 4-6 weeks assuming normal dosages and normal phosphate levels but the best thing to do is monitor your phosphates for an increase, and change the GFO when the phosphates begin to rise.

Which reactor do you recommend for the ROX 0.8 carbon? Do you have one that will compress it and keep it between filter pads where it can't escape to the tank?

Thanks,
David
Question by: David on Apr 4, 2014 6:01:00 PM
Hey David,
The standard BRS reactor I think is the best for the ROX carbon. Its filter pads are fine enough that the carbon stays inside of them. There are a lot of great reactors out there, but with most of the other ones you will need to custom cut some filter floss material to keep the carbon from going through the sponges as its quite small.

What kind of carbon is recommended to run in a reactor
Question by: Rick on Oct 28, 2013 11:56:00 AM
Hey Rick,
It really depends on the reactor. The ROX carbon is the best carbon we sell, but because of its small particle size its well suited to reactors whose sponges have large holes in them. For those types of reactors the lignite carbon will be the best bet as its still performs better then most carbons while being a larger particle size.

Full Details

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.

 

Recommended Dosage: 1 tablespoon per 10 gallons, or use our Reef Calculator for hassle-free dosage recommendations.

  • Good carbon. By Rivers on 8/29/2015

    Keeps the water crystal clear for a long time.
  • BRS Bulk Premium ROX 0.8 Aquarium Carbon By steve on 8/28/2015

    my water is so clean bye bye yellow water
  • don't think twice By Aaron on 8/24/2015

    This carbon is a bit pricy compared to others but is well worth it. After setting up my tank this had the water clear in a few short hours. This works well in the BRS dual reactor and the dust rinses clean with just a few cups of water running through it.
  • Works like promised By Wayne on 8/19/2015

    really good product and is easy to use since there is very little dust which means quick rinse and it is ready to go.
  • Fantastic By Randy on 8/10/2015

    I run this and it works wonders. Can say enough about this. This is the go to Carbon!
  • Great stuff By Flick on 8/2/2015

    I tried the smallest quantity just to try because I'm a sceptic. I have crystal clear water using it in a canister filter. It's virtually dust free! Now I'll purchase it in larger quantities. I've never had the clarity I have now!
  • Great Water Clarifier By UrbanReef on 7/30/2015

    Have been dosing to my 600 gallon system for 3 months now and my water is always crystal clear which makes my lights job easier; clear water positively impacts all my system
  • Best carbon By Michael on 7/29/2015

    Best carbon I have used. Particle size is small, I used a bag inside my reactor because I didn't like the carbon getting into the foam pads.
    Very tiny amount of fines when I rinsed compared to every other brand I've used. It definitely works far better and out performs others I have used.
    Worth the extra cost as it last longer and works better.
  • WOW! By Ed on 7/25/2015

    This carbon just performs so much better than everything i've ever used. It is also very fast working! Love it!
  • best ever By zsuzsu21 on 7/23/2015

    i've used em all, no comparison
  • Awesome! By Marty on 7/11/2015

    By far the best carbon I have ever used! You get what you pay for.
  • Use in 3 different aquariums By Jerry on 7/9/2015

    I use this in my 200, 55 and 6 gal Pico. The first two are in BRS reactors and the last in a nylon stocking located it in the hang on filter. This is a nice finishing touch toward the goal of clear water.
