    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

    Bulk Reef Supply 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.

    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.

    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.

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.

  • Best carbon By MarkO on 2/28/2015

    Clean. Little dust. Works!
  • Very little dust! By Tony on 2/26/2015

    Cleared very quickly in my BRS Deluxe reactor!
  • Only carbon to use By Shawn on 2/26/2015

    I've been using the ROX 0.8 exclusively for 3 years now. I have one tank with several Angels and another with two Tangs. None of the fish have HLLE in the slightest. I've heard of carbon dust causing HLLE; I believe this product is a good insurance policy against that. Totally worth the money, especially if you buy the 5 gallon bucket when on sale.
  • Exellent By James on 2/23/2015

    Low dust, water is crystal what more could I ask for.
  • awesome By subie on 2/22/2015

    Water clear after a day of use
  • Worth every penny By Kevin on 2/19/2015

    Awsome coral starts with great water. Why would you skimp.
  • ROX 0.8 review By Mike565 on 2/18/2015

    Use ROX 0.8 in my reef all the time. Its crystal clear.
  • awesome By ttboys on 2/15/2015

    after running rox 0.8 overnight I have seen a very crystal clear difference in my water
  • Great start By Ken on 2/14/2015

    Its the right product and perfect size to get your new carbon reactor off to a great start
  • Excellent By Mark on 2/14/2015

    I switched from one of the other carbons and wow minimal rinsing so changing it in my reactor is quickly done.
  • Quality carbon By Drag Racing Gramps on 2/8/2015

    I bought this carbon to run in the BRS dual reactor and it has worked out just fine. It sure appears to be a high quality product.
  • The only carbon I buy. By Chavinpat on 2/5/2015

    So far I have no problem Premium ROX 0.8, and will keep using it. Minimal dust, easy to clean, just follow the direction.
