Smells Like the Ocean By Jared on 11/15/13

I have been using this product for over 3 years, running it 24/7 changing out every 3-4 weeks. Its phenomenal, and is underestimated in its description. In my most recent tank setup I have used this media in a mesh bag (So it doesn't blow around:) in a life-reef filter cylinder, similar to the functionality in the reef octopus on this site (SKU: 205606) My open top tank literally smells like the ocean. a Little bit goes a long way. and on occasion I have let this product go 6 weeks without changing. Water clarity never drops.
Best carbon for the money By hans on 10/17/13

I used to use Rowa, but this is the best bang for the buck. Use it in BRS reactor along with phosphate media, corals, fish and I love it.
Too small for my reactor By Robert on 9/23/13

I have an aquamax media reactor and this carbon is too fine. It goes through the strainer and ended up all over my tank. I'm sure it is a quality product, but it may not work with your reactor. I replaced it with some larger granules that a friend had(which was also BRS Brand) so that is what I'll get for next time

Definitely get a funnel so you can pour it easily in the canister. Works great.

Carbon came well packed and worked great in the BRS reactor.
Fantastic - Reactor, Media Bag - you name it. By Stephen on 9/10/13

I run this on my reef tank in a TLF 550 reactor, and every now and then I run it on my planted aquarium in a Fluval FX5 - i put it in a Sachem "The Bag" media bag for that. It works great.
The reviewer that had it blow out all over his tank was probably blasting water through his reactor so fast the Carbon wouldn't have worked well anyway. My reactor is inline after another 550 w/ High Density FO. The combo is magical.
great performance By Jason on 9/2/13

This product is just as described. Has little to no fines to rinse out! Packs in nice and seems to maintain flow rather nicely.
Hands down the best I've ever used By Matt on 8/30/13

OK, I've always been a carbon user and seen negligible results (box store carbon petco etc).This product is nothing short of amazing. It has done wonders for my water clarity in my reef tank. I also gave my wife a "reef tank hand me down" for her 75G fancy goldfish tank. We recently put a new log in the tank and it has been leaching for months, Turning the water a sickly yellow. I filled my old GFO reactor (just replaced it with a BRS dual reactor) with ROX and put it on the goldie tank.. In ONE DAY the water is absolutely crystal clear... Thank you BRS, You should market this stuff for the freshwater industry as well!

Awesome carbon By Sean on 8/27/13

I use the ROX with the BRS GFO in my BRS reactor and the combo works perfectly every time. Crystal clear water!! Plus, hardly any rinsing of the carbon is necessary. I'm not sure why one reviewer has said not to use this in a reactor but I can tell you there are absolutely no issues using it in the BRS reactor. I have never found any of the carbon floating around in my sump.

I wouldn't buy any other brand of carbon.
