It does require a large amount of pre-rinsing with DI water prior to using. It normally removes all particles in the tank in a 1-2 day time frame.

Clears my water right up. works great in BRS reactor. Kinda dusty but they warn you about that.

Works great at making your water sparkle. But will probably give your fish HLLE (Head and Lateral Line Erosion)

Have tried the Rox but have settled on this carbon option. It's the most cost effective carbon solution IMO.

Great reeling product! By Felixpaws on 3/13/13

The small size has more surface area for adsorption, and fills the space better, than the large granule. Works well, in reef environments, with little rinsing required.
Works great but hard to get water flow. By Isaac on 2/28/13
Isaac would recommend this product to a friend
This has cleaned up my water very well and thus I would recommend it to a friend but I might recommend that he try the large particle version as it seems I can not find a pump that can comfortably push water through the small particle stuff.
Crystal Clear By Samuel on 1/3/13
Samuel would recommend this product to a friend
I never thought I could have this clear of water til I started using BRS carbon. As soon as I use up my gallon of small particle carbon I will be trying out ROX.
Good enough for me By greg on 9/15/12
greg would recommend this product to a friend
I havent tried the premium stuff yet, dont know if I will. This stuff made a difference in my water clarity, especially when used in a reactor. This definitely beats the marineland stuff and pretty much anything else. you can tell the difference.
great product By chad on 7/6/12

Bought this awhile ago, has lasted a long time. And has been an excellent carbon. I chose this over rox because I change my carbon out every 2 weeks. Works great in my brs reactor

It works great in my brs reactor and my water is crystal clear!! It took about a week to kick in but when it did, it was crazy. My only complaint is that it's super dusty. But it's not a big deal.

I use this for two weeks in small volume then change along with GFO.
5 Stars for Large Particle; 2 Stars for Small Particle By Jeff on 1/12/12
Jeff wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
If you are using a BRS reactor, then buy the large particle size. The small particle size is clumping up on me and restricting the flow through the reactor. Unfortunately, I purchased a 5 gallon bucket of the small particle size after successful use of the large particle size carbon. I hope this review keeps you from making the same mistake!
Great performance and price By Cory on 1/3/12

I have been using this carbon for a few months and am very happy with the performance. It does have a lot of dust, but does rinse easily. The price is great and my aquarium water looks much better.

quality product for a great price. i have a large tank with a large reactor so for me there is no other choice out there. great, cost effective way to run a carbon reactor.
Good stuff. Great price! By Kevin on 9/27/11
Kevin would recommend this product to a friend
This carbon works just as good as any other carbon for much cheaper. It is also more user friendly. I use in in a reactor for my reef, and in my filter cartridges on my freshwater. Polishes the water and I dont have to worry about little carbon "floaties" all in my tanks>

Great carbon at a great price By Larry on 3/14/11
Larry would recommend this product to a friend
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
Wayne wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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
Guillermo would recommend this product to a friend
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.

Best I could find By Tim on 10/28/10

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.
