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.

  • Crystal Clear Water By Dan on 1/20/2015

    Have tried many different brands of carbon over the years. I find the premium rox 8.0 to be a superior product.
  • Much better than Bags By Jordan on 1/16/2015

    I used the carbon in my new BRS reactor and have noticed a big difference in water quality over previous set ups.
  • Tragic hero By Jesse Lee on 1/15/2015

    This stuff is great. It absorbs quick, and has hardly any dust at all. The price is awesome also. The one fault I can find with it is that my brs gac/gfo delux clogs up very quickly (no socks). It lasts maybe a week and a half before I have to replace it. I work in a remote region and have someone take care of the tank for me (dosing, feeding and skimmer cleaning) but they don't change media. So when I come back it's not really working anymore. Next time I'll get bigger pellets and run this while I'm home.
  • only the best in my reef By o2c5 on 1/14/2015

    I love this carbon, the water is crystal clear,all the time. It seems as if the water is removed from the tank. Can't be happier
  • Great product By Screef on 1/12/2015

    Great product. Hardly any dust and keeps water clean.
  • Worth the cost By Qais on 1/9/2015

    Very clean. High quality. Minimal dust. At the moment this the best carbon to go with
  • I love this carbon By Raymond on 12/31/2014

    High quality...Works really well.
  • A Necessity for your reef tank! By Luis on 12/31/2014

    Great product. Long lasting. Keeps my water clean. Enough said.
  • Great Carbon By Mark on 12/23/2014

    I've been using this is a filter sock on my hob filter. It does a great job keeping my water crystal clear. A little of this carbon treats a lot of water. I like that since it keeps the price down.
  • Product caused HLLE in my tangs By Brent on 12/22/2014

    I discontinued use of this product as it caused HLLE in my purple and yellow tangs. After proper rinsing in rodi I would place in my sump, a few minutes later my skimmer would have a tar black sludge developing from the products dust. This caused severe fin erosion in my tangs so I discontinued use. As soon as I stopped using this product my tangs fins grew back and HLLE was gone. I have picture evidence of this if anyone is curious.
  • Only one use By Greenstreet on 12/21/2014

    Helps keep my water very clean
  • Wonderful! By GARY on 12/15/2014

    I am not an experienced aquarist; but I an say that My tank looks like it has no water in it when I use this stuff and still does after 2 Weeks in a heavily stocked tank. A little bit goes a long way, so is cheap to buy, really.
