I'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.

Purchased 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

Pretty good stuff By Steve on 3/28/2013

I haven't worked with a lot of carbon over the years, but this stuff seems pretty nice and high quality. I put it in my new BRS carbon reactor and it cleared up the tank in just a few days. I will probably replace more often than the instructions say though, from what I have been reading elsewhere.

Ok, I just bought a gallon of this stuff and loaded into my marineland Hot Magnum 250 filter. Too early to tell if will give any better results then the regular Carbon you buy at the local store, but there are two things I can definitely comment on:
1) This stuff is small. I didn't realize how small. It looks like metal shavings. I was a bit concerned it might make it out of the filter cartridge and jam up my filter, so make sure before you buy this stuff you have a fine filter sleeve/cartridge. Get a ruler and really look at a millimeter. This is .8mms.
2) They were telling the truth when they said it has low dust. After I loaded it into my cartridge I tried to wash out the dust. Normally the water runs black for about a minute but this stuff made me look stupid. I couldn't see the water dim at all when it ran through.
Anyway, that's all I got for now. Good Luck.

Used a ton of different carbon on my 150 gallon tank. Now I will never use anything else. I use this with a brs reactor with in a 1hr of adding new carbon the tank is crystal clear!!!
Fits in top of TLF phosphoban reactor By Paul on 2/21/2013

I get this for the sole purpose of putting 1/4 cup in the top of my TLF phosphoban reactor just above the top circular foam filter. This allows me to get cleaner water, and also helps to catch some of the particulate from the gfo. Clean water and a sump not stained red!
Excellent media, definitely worth the extra money By Codemannc on 2/19/2013

I used the cheaper media for years and finally realized that to be truly successful in the aquarium hobby, you need to spend money one quality equipment and media. This definitely worth every penny.

Well worth the additional price! By JABlacher on 2/3/2013

The ROX carbon is a bit more expensive than the pellet and granular form but well worth the expense. Just be sure to watch the flow rate going through your reactor to insure that you don't shoot the media through your sponges and in to your sump. If you want crystal clear water this is a great help though!!
