I have been using this carbon for a few months and it does exactly what is advertised. I change it every two weeks and use the calculator to figure out how much to use and it keeps the water in my tank crystal clear.

I have used different brands before and this blows the other products out of the water. Instantly clearer water and the fish and coral loved it, and so did I.
Good Carbon By David on 3/18/2012

It is just carbon after all! That said, its good stuff. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on the recommendation is that I would caution anyone who uses carbon in a reactor that this stuff is significantly smaller in size compared to most other carbon products. As a result, you should down power (ball valve) your pump or be prepared to swap to a smaller pump. Otherwise, this stuff does the job as well as any other out there. I always notice water clarity and a little, immediate boost in coral growth when after a change in the media.
excellent product By James on 3/14/2012

The performance of the ROX .8 out weighs the cost. It's technically a little less expensive, than the smaller carbon, because I don't have to use as much.
Best Carbon I have Found By Ted on 3/8/2012
Ted would recommend this product to a friend
I had purchased "reef" carbon from a local reef supply company... the lack of clarity and odor still persisted. One day with ROX 0.8 and a BRS Carbon Reactor and it is clear and smell is gone! I am a fan for good!

Best carbon on the market. Keeps the water crystal clear.
Excellent Carbon By Jesse on 3/2/2012
Jesse would recommend this product to a friend
This is by far the best carbon I have used and has an exceptional price. It rinses off clean and does not break down as fast as other carbons I have used in the past. Would definitely recommend this above any other carbon on the market, well, at least of the ones I have tired and that covers just about every carbon that is commonly available in Local Fish Stores.

Low dust as advertised. I use passively in a mesh sock and the results are wonderful.
ROX Rocks! By Carl on 2/21/2012
Carl would recommend this product to a friend
Early in my reefing experience I realized the importance of using carbon and have never turned back. Finding the right carbon however has been a trial and error task that has ended at ROX 0.8. I'm using it in a BRS media reactor and by far this carbon has kept my system cleaner than any other type i've tried. On top of that, the amount of dust/fines it produces is nil if you properly clear it when installing a fresh cartridge. I only replace a cupful every 4 weeks in my setup and my water is crystal clear. I switched to this carbon right during a silicone poisoning disaster (my fault) and my tank recovered from a lethargic near-death state to happy and healthy within 48 hours. Thank you ROX!

Best carbon I have used to date!! By Mike on 2/17/2012

This stuff works great, nit sure if it this particular carbon or the dual BRS reactor I run it in. But it works! Produces great water clarity.

This stuff is fantastic. When compared to other brands at other retailers, this stuff is the best deal going, hands-down.
Low dust By Joseph on 2/13/2012
Joseph would recommend this product to a friend
Well this isnt your average carbon. I feel this has much lower dust and a higher asorbance than other carbons i have used in the past. Just make sure you replace it regulary cause it becomes fully saturated fast.

Great carbon, very clean and seems to work as it should. As others said, media consists of very thin "sticks" but i dont have a problem with it.

i had tried all kinds of carbon, but so far rox is the best. my tank look sooooo much crystal clear within 24 hrs. the price is a little high but the quality is totally worth it.
Great stuff, little hard to work with By ange062 on 1/19/2012
ange062 would recommend this product to a friend
Performance is great, just like the video states as well as anyone else has used it. And for the price it's really a steal. I only change it out once a month and my water stays crystal clear, I could probably go longer. My only gripe with it is that the media consists of very thin "sticks" of carbon, just like the pellet stuff you are used to but much smaller. This makes it a little hard to work with, especially once it's wet, because it becomes a soup like consistency that sticks to everything, plus some floats while some sinks. Rinsing the media then getting it into a reactor isn't nearly as simple as the regular pellets, but it's doable. I've also had to change out the sponge in my reactor for filter floss to keep the ROX0.8 from getting into my sump and display.
Overall, a small price to pay for the performance. I still use it and would recommend to anyone.

This is the cleanest carbon I have ever used. Very little dust when you rinse, unlike other carbon that never seems to rinse clear. Worth the few extra bucks.
Much better than carbon from LFS By Tmeade on 1/13/2012
Tmeade would recommend this product to a friend
I've been using carbon from the LFS. This is a far superior product. I didn't have to rinse this carbon forever prior to placing it in my tank like the less expensive/lower quality products from the LFS. Also, no carbon fine in my sump. Instantly noticeable improvement of tank water also. You don't realize how yellow your tank water is until you use this product. Great value. This size container will last for 6+ months in my 110 gal. tank.
