Awesome!! By Benjamin on 4/10/14Benjamin would recommend this product to a friendI recently switched from the lignite to this stuff, and the difference is huge! Definitely worth the extra cash.
Great product By KEITH on 4/9/14KEITH would recommend this product to a friendHave just started using the BRS premium carbon and it is doing a great job.Will order larger size next order
Great product By Alex on 4/7/14Alex would recommend this product to a friendI use it combined with BRS GFO in a BRS dual reactor and it works great. No dust, and sparkling clear water in the tank.
Great carbon By Eli on 4/3/14Eli would recommend this product to a friendThis carbon outperforms any other carbon I've used. Great product!
Very happy By Woodchaka on 4/2/14Woodchaka would recommend this product to a friendGreat product!
GREAT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE By Rob on 4/1/14Rob would recommend this product to a friendI have used this product for years and have had great reults!
Great product By Dennis on 3/28/14Dennis would recommend this product to a friendGreat product, A terrific value when compared with other carbon products on the market
Great By jacyn on 3/27/14jacyn would recommend this product to a friendALso another great product. Good value and performance
Crystal Clear By Jon on 3/21/14Jon would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff makes my water crystal clear. Not as cheap as the regular but does a very excellent job at what it is supposed to do.
best carbon By ryan on 3/20/14ryan would recommend this product to a friendThis is some of the best carbon i have used. i has a very low ash content and the wash out takes seconds not 30 mins or more like some cheeper brands. I have had nothing but great results and clean clean water!
Great stuff By MikeC on 3/17/14MikeC would recommend this product to a friendGreat stuff
Best Carbon I have Used By Garrick on 3/12/14Garrick would recommend this product to a friendIt is not dusty at all and seems to be working very well in my BRS dual reactor.

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.

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?
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.
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.
