I use this with GFO in my BRS reactor and it's great. Clears the water nicely.
Great carbon at a great price By Larry on 3/14/11

I normally use Lignite in my 2LF 150 reactor with great results. When it came time to reorder, I accidentally ordered ROX 0.8 instead. I think the Lignite works just as well for my tank and the larger granules are MUCH easier to contain-the ROX 0.8 carbon slips past the sponges and ends up in my sump. The Lignite has more dust, but a quick rinse solves that.
if you don't mind d\a lot of dust By Wayne on 3/4/11

It polishes your water great and it's a great price BUT it also has a LOT of dust. Running in my BRS reactor it turns my filter socks black no matter how much or how long I rinse it.
It is a Premium Carbon to me By Guillermo on 1/8/11

Am I an expert at this Hobby? No. Do I know everything? No. Is this the best carbon i've ever used? Yes! Now, keep in mind when i bought the carbon i also bought a reactor consecutively, it might of had something to do with it, all i know is that ever since i started using lignite in conjunction with granular GFO via the BRS deluxe reactor on my 29g Biocube, things haven't been the same! My corals look healthier, my water seems like its been ridicoulously polished, etc. im very happy with it.

When it comes to good value, this stuff is great. I havent found anything close to its filtering , and nothing close in the bang for your buck arena, especially since BRS has got the standard shipping. You cant beat a deal like this.

Crystal Clear Water... By Deep Blue Sea on 12/22/09
Deep Blue Sea would recommend this product to a friend
I use this product in a large media reactor (1000 gal+ system) sandwiching two layers of carbon (large particle) with a layer of GFO in the middle (so the GFO doesn't escape through the top of the reactor). The combination keeps the water in this system crystal clear. The tank is just short of 30 feet long and when looking through one end, I could read a book at the other end and I'm not joking.
As there is a lot of dust that gets sent airborn when loading in large qty's it's a good idea to load up your media reactor in a well ventilated place (ideally outside). Highly recommended for efficacy and $ value.
