Combination carbon size By Justin on 9/28/2014Justin would recommend this product to a friendWorks great! I like to mix the small particle with some large particle in my BRS reactor that way you get the benefit of both worlds. Price is great and no complaints.
Great product By Jonathan on 5/1/2014Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great item to be running in your aquarium after a week my water looks better then before I started using it. Works better if run on a reactor.
Good product By Monica on 4/25/2014Monica would recommend this product to a friendThis was the first time I bought carbon in bulk and the small particle does the job. I mix this with some gfo in my reactor and my water looks crystal clear.
For the price it is great! By Nicholas on 3/25/2014Nicholas would recommend this product to a friendthe price is great and it lasts fairly long. i have it running with GFO in the BRS reactor and i change it every month. works well for me!
love it By harry on 2/26/2014harry would recommend this product to a friendlow dust,works great, cannot think of one complaint
Great product By Michael on 12/30/2013Michael would recommend this product to a friendIt does require a large amount of pre-rinsing with DI water prior to using. It normally removes all particles in the tank in a 1-2 day time frame.

works great with caution By Dwilk on 7/16/2013Dwilk wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWorks great at making your water sparkle. But will probably give your fish HLLE (Head and Lateral Line Erosion)
Cost Effective! By Eric on 7/5/2013Eric would recommend this product to a friendHave tried the Rox but have settled on this carbon option. It's the most cost effective carbon solution IMO.

Which Bulk Catalytic Activated Carbon is equivalent to that provided in your Chloramine filter kit?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Bob,
It is actually different from all of the aquarium carbons. Because the surface activated carbon for chloramines is used in the RO units its actually in the RO/DI filters category and can be found at the link below:
Quick Compare - Carbon
|Special Grade Bituminous||Lignite||Premium ROX 0.8|
|Removal of Dissolved Organic Compounds||
Small, Medium & Large
|Average Rinse Time in a Filter Sock||
|Best Application||Filter socks, Reactors and Equipment requiring large low dust media||Reactors||Filter socks and reactors capable of using small particle media|
|All of our carbons work well in the BRS reactor which is our suggested method of utilizing carbon in the aquarium.|
BRS Lignite Carbon will outperform competing brands for less. The primary function of carbon is to remove color pigments, pollutants, and medications from an aquarium. Each has a larger molecule structure and requires a carbon with a pore size large enough to effectively remove them. Our Lignite Carbon contains a high number of large pores capable of removing these molecules.
We purchase 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.
BRS Bulk Lignite Carbon comes in small or large particles. Large particles are easier to work with, while the small particles will be slightly more efficient.
SPECIAL NOTE: Lignite carbon contains more dust because it is softer. Be gentle when rinsing and do not tumble the material in a reactor which will create more fines. Carbon is most effective at slow flow rates. For a harder carbon with low dust please try BRS Premium ROX 0.8 Carbon.
