This stuff is tiny. I was surprised how tiny. It stayed in a filter sock fine, but it is really really really small. That said, it also worked really really really well. Within about 6 hours my water was perfectly clear.

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!

This carbon absolutely make my tanks look crystal clear. I love to see all the nasty things thats collected in the reactor that the carbon has removed. wether its in my nano up to my 240 gallon this keeps my tank real clean. It's the only carbon i use in all 4 of my tanks. Thanks BRS for another great product.

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
Stephen would recommend this product to a friend
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.
