rox 8 carbom By jose on 3/11/14jose would recommend this product to a friendbest carbon ever
Best carbon around By Chad on 3/5/14Chad would recommend this product to a friendI've used this on two aquariums and love it. It's so nice that it isn't dusty! I don't even rinse before putting it in the tank. Just get fine media bag and or decent sponge in your reactor and you are good to go!
If you have never used carbon in your tank or used the cheap stuff, go light the first couple times, this stuff is really powerful and can shock things if you go overboard.
gives the water a good shine By peter on 3/4/14peter would recommend this product to a friendi've had this in a brs reactor for a week now and it has really shined the water up pretty good. I mix it with gfo but I think the shine is coming from the carbon. very good results, will definitely continue using this in my reactor.
Best Carbon ever used By Samuel on 3/1/14Samuel would recommend this product to a friendI have used many brands of carbon over the years and ROX has done the best job by far.
Best carbon ever By Bryce on 2/25/14Bryce would recommend this product to a friendThis carbon is top notch! It lasts a long time! Takes no time to rinse
Crystal Clear By Chris on 2/13/14Chris would recommend this product to a friendI've been using Chemi-pure for years (both types). I used various carbon as well. The BRS carbon though impressed me within hours of swapping it into the tank.
The water is absolutely crystal clear in almost no time.
Low dust, efficient By surfishjoe on 2/13/14surfishjoe would recommend this product to a friendI like this carbon in my sump I use less and there is little dust. Seems to work great. Little pricey but seems worth it.
Great Product By Edward on 2/4/14Edward would recommend this product to a friendI love buying BRS products they are truly amazing. I ordered the carbon for by BRS dual reactor and the carbon keeps my water crystal clear.
Best carbon ever By Redneck reefer on 1/24/14Redneck reefer would recommend this product to a friendBest carbon I have used and I have used a lot of different brands it filters more and lasts longer and you use less so buy it you will not regret it like all brs products top quality
rox 0.8 By kevin on 1/20/14kevin would recommend this product to a friendthis is great carbon low dust and works
Very Great product for any aquarium! By Corey on 1/17/14Corey would recommend this product to a friendBought the premium rox carbon here on BRS, Very great product runs very clean. currently running it in the BRS dual stage reactor on my 150 gallon reef along with the GFO from BRS, Couldnt ask for better media expecially at the price! 10/10
The video speaks for itself on how powerful this carbon is By Vince on 1/14/14Vince would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is great but use with caution as with any chemical filtration. Dial in the right amount follow their online calculator! Best carbon I have ever run, and if you aren't running carbon. This is the product to use and the bulk size means save $$$$$

How long will the media brs GFO high capacity & Premium POX 0.8 carbon be changed?
Bulk Reef Supply 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.

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!!
Bulk Reef Supply 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:

What kind of carbon is recommended to run in a reactor
Bulk Reef Supply 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.
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.
