Takes a few more minutes to rinse By Joseph on 1/7/13

I've used this as well as the BRS Premium ROX 0.8.
They are both great products. However, in a canister filter I did not see sufficient difference between this and the ROX 0.8 to justify the price differential.
If cost is not an issue, then its a no-brainer: buy the ROX
very good media By 241wrasse on 12/22/12

Good media, good price buying the 1 gal container. Easy maintenance. Cleans easily: dump the old carbon & remove sponge, then simply dunk the cartridge once into water. I've found it's easiest to clean the sponge by flicking an edge of it with a finger, large particles just jump out/off the sponge - best done in a 5 gal bucket to avoid lignite getting scattered across the room!
Good stuff By Greg on 10/22/12

Rinse well before use, but it works really well. I see a noticeable difference in my water clarity after using it for a day or so. I've used it in both a BRS reactor and a filter bag.
Keeps tank clean By Robert on 9/20/12

The lignite does keep my tank real clean, however it still has a bit of dust. I do like the value of the lignite.

Just switched to this carbon and the difference is amazing. It quickly washes out the dust and is easy to put into the BRS media reactor. Definitely will buy again!

I just started using this carbon (large) particle on my 120g reef. Im using a small canister with a small rio pump to push the water through it very slowly as long contact time is what you want with carbon. It is keeping my tank crystal clear. It is easy to rinse and I change it out every 2 weeks.
Good balance of cost to performance By Lee on 6/18/12

Like any material the duration is based on concentration of compounds you want to remove in contrast to the volume of media. I find this grade to be a good balance in performance to value/cost.
great carbon By Darrell on 5/26/12

I have used BRS carbon for a long time. I normally used small particle, but decided to try the large this time. much better in my opinion. It contains a lot less dust and risnses clean a lot easier. and the larger particles dont try to work their way through the foam pad in my TLF reactor. I'm not a scientist, but I cannot tell any performance difference between large and small particle. my frag tank had a terrible odor since I have been out of carbon for a while. after placing carbon in tank the odor was gone in less than an hour! great carbon!

This a great product with an excellent price which if your on a budget it's perfect. The product works better that the marineland carbon I was using. Thanks
