Best carbon in the hobby By richard on 5/8/13richard would recommend this product to a friendI absolutely love this carbon. Almost no dust and highest surface area of any ive used. Crystal clear water! Highly recommend this product. Way to go BRS
Do not use in a reactor By Kat on 5/6/13Kat wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWhile ROX takes out the organics in the water much better than alternate carbon products, the particle size makes this a horrible choice for a reactor. In fact the product should clearly state "not for use in a reactor". I called BRS and switched to lignite small particle and could not be happier that most of the carbon is not being spit out. It might mean I have to use more product or change more frequently but better that than have carbon all over the place.
great carbon By Shaun on 5/6/13Shaun would recommend this product to a friendBy far the best carbon on the market. Its a very fine carbon and rinses in less than a minute and out last and out performs any other carbon.

Super Clear Water By Brad on 4/25/13Brad would recommend this product to a friendAdding 1 cup of ROX to my BRS media reactor clears 100 gallons within 24 hours. Removes yellow tinge from water.

Will definatly will orger this product again By Bill K on 4/19/13Bill K would recommend this product to a friendJust started to use this product in my BRS dual reactor .Very easy to use and nice flo in the reactor .Water is getting clearer .Started to add some fish in the tank
Rox rocks By John on 4/14/13John would recommend this product to a friendSimply the best carbon available. Rinses fast. Great product.
works great By Andy C on 4/8/13Andy C would recommend this product to a friendI've been using the ROX carbon for a few months now and it seems to work as advertised. I can't compare it to the other carbons, but can say that this one works. My system is 200 gallons total and I use 1.5 cups in a reactor, changed every two weeks. Things are still very clear by the end of the two weeks, so I imagine that it lasts longer, but I like to keep things conservative.
ROX 0.8 ROCKS! By Christian on 4/4/13Christian would recommend this product to a friendBest GAC on the market. Period.
Great Buy By Chase on 4/3/13Chase would recommend this product to a friendPurchased this product for my very first saltwater reef tank a few weeks ago along with the BRS dual reactor. My water looks crystal clear and can't wait to add fish and corals
Great product By Rob on 4/1/13Rob would recommend this product to a friendNice size and shape. Seems to work great!

when should be rox carbon be change.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey James,
We recommend changing carbon every 2 weeks. As a whole it is better to use less carbon and change it more often so that you can keep the parameters in the tank more stable.

How much does 1/2 gallon weigh?

How much of the ROX carbon do I need to run for a 210 gallon tank?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Mike,
Great question. For a 210 gallon tank you would be looking at about 1 1/3 cup. The easiest way to calculate how much of any of our carbons (or really any of our bulk materials) is to cheat and use our reef calculator. It can be found right here:

How often should you change out the carbon using BRS dual reactor in a 55 gallon tank
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Gary,
Great question. Carbon should always be changed every 2 weeks.
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.
