Previously Asked Questions

    How much of this carbon should be used in a reef tank? Is one cup per 50 gallons sufficient? Is changing out the carbon once a month a proper schedule?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jeffrey,
    How much carbon to use depends on the particular carbon (and obviously tank size as you mention). The easiest way to figure it out with any of our carbon/gfo is to use the handy dandy reef calculator linked below (In the case of the lignite carbon it will tell you to use about 1/2 cup of carbon per 50g).

All of our carbons work well in the BRS reactor which is our suggested method of utilizing carbon in the aquarium.

Bulk Reef Supply Activated 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 Activated 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.

 

Bulk Reef Supply Activated Lignite Carbon comes in small or large particals. Large particles are easier to work with, while the small particles will be slightly more efficient.

 

  • Lignite Carbon Specs
  • Molasses Decolorizing efficiency 85 MIN
  • Dust%  0.40 Max
  • Iodine Number 625
  • Surface Area M2/g 650
  • Total pore Volume mL/g 0.95
  • Washed with Hydrochloric Acid
  • Food Chemical Codex Passes

 

***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 ROX 0.8 Carbon.

  • Great product By G-Money on 2/12/2015

    I Have ben using this forever and i love it it works great.
  • Good Carbon By Keith on 2/2/2015

    I like the Lignite large particle as it's not as aggressive as the ROX. Great price, I buy in bulk.
  • Once I got the reactor tuned in, just great By japicka on 1/26/2015

    I had my reactor input turned up a bit too much and it was tumbling like crazy with the GFO which was grinding it to dust. That made the water hazy, and turned my filter sock gray. Once I readjusted everything and got the flow right, water became crystal clear in less than 4 hours. Great stuff.
  • Great value By Jason on 1/8/2015

    Pound for pound this is a great bargain for carbon. It works well, my water is crystal clear. I don't use a reactor so the larger particle size is what I want. I expected it to be dusty, but I wasn't quite prepared for it to be this dusty. The rinse water ran solid black for a long time. I took more than 30 minutes and who knows how many gallons of water before I felt comfortable putting it in my sump.
  • Best carbon By brian on 11/15/2014

    Best carbon to buy. Is it really needed over the mid grade not sure. But if you got the extra money why not.
  • Great stuff By Bill on 11/11/2014

    Works great to clear up occasional clouding
  • Economical/easy to use By IdahoReefer on 8/18/2014

    I Like the particle size.
  • Never knew it until I saw the results By Kenneth on 8/14/2014

    I actually cannot believe how well this product works. If you were using other carbon before, you may wonder what exactly using this type will do for you. That's how I felt, I just knew I needed to give it a try as I did not like using other brands that were not easy to discern what quality I was getting.

    Turns out, you can really see the difference. I noticed the water clarity becoming better than I ever thought or realized how bad it had gotten. Very easy to use, highly recommend to anyone.
  • clear water, any questions? By James on 7/1/2014

    Clean crystal clear water, great price, why buy anything else?
  • Best Carbon Value By Kyle on 5/8/2014

    Used some other carbon from the LFS, until I wised up.... This is the best value for carbon. Make sure you rinse it though, just like all the rest, and it works great!
  • better then buying packets By CalisFinest on 2/12/2014

    love it use it in all my systems needs a good rinsing before use but doesnt get into everything like the rox carbon. get a filter sock or a canister and say good buy to prepackaged carbon this stuff is way better.
  • Good Price By TremontReefer on 1/13/2014

    Best priced Carbon around. Works well.
