I know it is a bit more expensive, but you get much longer use out of this carbon.
Good, but annoying By Matt on 8/3/2014

So, I've been using Seachem Matrix Carbon in my Aquamaxx reactor for a while with no issues. i saw a good deal on the Rox at BRS, and (after all of the good word of mouth I've heard) I decided to try it.
Well, I can say it works well, at least as well as the Seachem Matrix which is a little more expensive.
BUT, it's really painful to use. Rinsing isn't even really that necessary, there's very little dust. The annoying part is that it's very small, and goes right through two filter pads. I had to add a filter sock to the output of the reactor to catch it all (a good amount had made it into my tank by now).
TL;DR - Good carbon, just be ready for it to escape into your tank and add a filter sock to your carbon reactor.
Less is More By Felix on 8/1/2014

Went in with a friend to order a large supply. Really worth it as it takes a less quantity to produce crystal clear water than then bigger stuff. Since you use less, it justifies the price for a better product.
Dont make the same mistake as I did! By William on 7/26/2014

I decided to try a different Carbon from Amazon. You know cheaper a little bit more etc etc... Well now I am paying the price, my PO4 levels have raised and my SPS are browning. I quickly went back to the ROX and will never switch again. This Carbon works great and last a lot longer. If you're on the fence on which carbon to get from BRS, The ROX might be a little more but it all equals out in the long run. Awesome product!

Almost no dust. It's simply the best carbon I've ever used. You definitely get what you pay for.

I love this carbon, the only carbon that is small and works well in the reefing hobby. Has no phosphate, is a bit dusty so a good rinse with RODI is always a good idea.

Been using this Carbon Since XMAS 2013 and let me tell you how clear my water stays. Barely any dust particles and rinses out in seconds!

I use this carbon in my reactor. I had a yellow tint to my water and know my water is crystal clear. I couldn't see switching to another brand. Use the BRS calculator and it takes out the guess work on figuring out how much to use.
Quick Results By Theoden on 6/2/2014

My new cycling aquarium had developed an odor. After 24 hrs use of this carbon the smell vanished. Never had such a quick acting carbon. I will say it is a little difficult to deal with due to it's size, but it's nothing that should deter one from buying this product as it is top notch.

I have just started using this carbon and couldn't be happier. There is very very little dust and results are great. My water looked clear before a started using it. Now it is truly clear, don't fool yourself by thinking your water is clear. Use this carbon and be truly happy, I'll never use anything else. Thanks BRS

Bought this with my dual canister and it cleared up my water very nicely. If your experiencing cloudy water and can't figure it out try this carbon out.
Awesome By Aron on 5/20/2014

This stuff is great. It helps clean up my water after a water change - especially when the salt that I use makes the water a little more cloudier than I'd like it to be. With LEDs I think you can see more of the cloud in the water - especially the really fine particles you can't see with T5... This with the BRS reactor will easily clear all that up in 24 hours.

I run this in my BRS reactor and love it! The only downside of this carbon is the shape it has makes it get wedged in the filter pads and is difficult to get out, a pretty minor issue that I dont feel has any real impact on performance.

I've used this on two aquariums and love it. It's so nice that it isn't dusty! I don't even rinse before putting it in the tank. Just get fine media bag and or decent sponge in your reactor and you are good to go!
If you have never used carbon in your tank or used the cheap stuff, go light the first couple times, this stuff is really powerful and can shock things if you go overboard.

i've had this in a brs reactor for a week now and it has really shined the water up pretty good. I mix it with gfo but I think the shine is coming from the carbon. very good results, will definitely continue using this in my reactor.

I have tried 3 or 4 other types of carbon and this one is by far the best. It works very well and importantly is very low in dust. A quick rinse and it's ready to go. Unlike other types it doesn't continue to break up release more dust particles. Highly recommended.

After doing extensive research and testing several types of carbon that the LFS sold, I finally bought a gallon of Rox 0.8 carbon. The difference was amazing.
You can run this carbon through a reactor, but I run it through a media bag in a high-flow area of my sump.

Have used another premium carbon for over 7 years. First try with BRS carbon. Exactly as advertised. Put into a filter bag in my canister. Tank is crystal clear and no ill effects noticed in my 180 mixed reef. I hate change and on top of that I am very brand loyal, if it is quality. I am changing to BRS carbon from here on.

I decided to use this in a BRS reactor when I upgraded to my 200g reef tank. The water is crystal clear! My corals are open and doing great! I've seen on forums where folks bad mouth carbon, saying it removes good trace elements. I was therefor hesitant. Well, dont be! They dont know what theyre missing! No change in Calcium and Alk usage so I presume its not removing anything else either. As stated my Corals and Fish are very happy!

I've been reefing over 10+ years and used a lot of different carbon. I must say rox .8 works amazing, currently using it in my brs reactor and using brs gfo for several weeks now. Water clarity is crystal clear, zero smell, and corals look very happy and healthy. Very pleased with this product. Happy reefing!
