Excellent carbon By Gob on 1/11/2014

I have tried 3 or 4 other types of carbon and this one is by far the best. It works very well and importantly is very low in dust. A quick rinse and it's ready to go. Unlike other types it doesn't continue to break up release more dust particles. Highly recommended.

Wouldn't run a tank without it By Collin on 12/20/2013

After doing extensive research and testing several types of carbon that the LFS sold, I finally bought a gallon of Rox 0.8 carbon. The difference was amazing.
You can run this carbon through a reactor, but I run it through a media bag in a high-flow area of my sump.

No dust! By Ignatius on 12/16/2013

I don't think I really even needed to rinse this. Water became clearer Ann's my skimmer didn't freak out after I added it. I've run it in a bag and my reactor, works great in both.
Best Carbon yet By Scott on 12/15/2013
Scott would recommend this product to a friend
Have used another premium carbon for over 7 years. First try with BRS carbon. Exactly as advertised. Put into a filter bag in my canister. Tank is crystal clear and no ill effects noticed in my 180 mixed reef. I hate change and on top of that I am very brand loyal, if it is quality. I am changing to BRS carbon from here on.
This stuff is tiny, clean and works quickly By Anthony on 12/3/2013

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.
Awesome Product! By Toby on 11/28/2013

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!
2 thumbs up! By JESSE on 11/27/2013

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 11/14/2013
Jared would recommend this product to a friend
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 10/17/2013

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 9/22/2013
Robert would recommend this product to a friend
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

Carbon came well packed and worked great in the BRS reactor.
Fantastic - Reactor, Media Bag - you name it. By Stephen on 9/10/2013
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.

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 8/30/2013

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 8/27/2013

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.
