One thing I'd like to add (and it is recommended in the instructions for the product on this page--but I somehow glossed over it) is that the carbon seems to work MUCH more effectively with a reduced flow rate. I had mine in a canister filter going at about 120 GPH and thought it was doing fine, until I came across the information about it being more effective with slower flow rates. So, I lowered mine, and you know, within a day or two, my corals look so MUCH healthier and open, so yes, very delighted with the results. I didn't feel I had to rinse it out terribly long, but went though the motions just in case.

I can't think of a more efficient way to clear a tank up. Easy to use. I rinse after it is installed by flowing the output into a bucket, that way I can get a bonus water change in when I change media.
Great Carbon By BBoyter on 7/18/13

Bought the 5 gallon, now I don't have to buy anymore for a long time. It is dusty for the first few seconds but clears quickly and works great. 5 gallon bucket does have a seal in to keep it fresh.

I got this carbon and have been running it for 2 weeks now and it seems to be doing a great job.
did not notice to much waste as i rinsed it off either which a plus.

Clears the water and easy to use. As with all carbon it must be risned prior to use so that you get the dust off it

it does what it is supposed to do, and it does it very well. does it cheaply too. I dont think you can find a better price anywhere, at least not for the same quality product. BRS has all round great prices and high quality product, thanks again

You can't beat the quality and price. I have used brand named carbon with the same results. Make sure you rinse very well.
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!

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
Lee would recommend this product to a friend
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!
