This stuff is unbelievable By Alexander on 12/8/2014

I am running an unpopulated tank while I get everything set up the way I like it before adding my marine environment.
I was getting calcium and the usual water type buildup until I added this to the filter. Not only has it made the water crystal clear, it's actually slowly removing some of the left over buildup that I missed cleaning. Since adding this carbon I have not had to take a single swipe to clean the unpopulated tank of buildup (a couple months so far)
Very impressed at how effective this is.
Best carbon available. By Nate on 12/8/2014

Expensive? Well it costs a lot to buy a 1/2 gallon jug, but this stuff is so good that you don't need to use as much as standard carbon so it really isnt that much more expensive. rinsing is quick as it is very low dust and does a wonderful job. My water has never been so clear.

I have been using this for about 2 months now and I have never seen my water so clear. I would recommend this to anyone as it is the best carbon i have ever used. I suggest running it in the BRS Deluxe Media Reactor.

I'm not really the kind of guy who writes online reviews and stuff, but I have to give credit where credit is due. great job BRS with this carbon!

This is one of the best products I have ever used.

I prefer this carbon over other carbon because of the low dust. This will be the only product I use in my tank.
Excellent carbon By Jim on 11/13/2014

I've used many different GACs in the past - this is by far the best. Very little rinsing required - I just put it in a BRS reactor and rinse under tap water for about a minute. No fines released into tank water. Two cups last about a month on my heavily stocked 150 mixed reef.
Excellent choice By Greg on 10/31/2014

While I can't say that I'm positive this is better then any other carbon. I like that it takes less water to rinse it.

Almost no dust. It's simply the best carbon I've ever used. You definitely get what you pay for.
Excellent product, but not my first choice. By Charles on 10/27/2014

I used this product in my TLF reactor. It is an excellent carbon that does a much better than average job of keeping the water clean.
I suggest the white bucket test to check how well your carbon works.
I have only two reasons why this is not my first choice. The size and shape of the carbon particles.
I personally prefer the spherical beads of Sea Chem Matrix carbon. The beads are bigger and seem to have better hydrodynamic properties to me. This might be flow dependent or reactor dependent.. So please know that I would not generalize my anecdote to all tanks.
Both are excellent products, but I had trouble with this one going through filter pads. Neither one has much dust. I think that matrix carbon clumps a little less over time.
You can't go wrong with either product as long as you change it when your bucket test show yellow water.
