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 1/7/2013

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 12/22/2012

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 10/22/2012

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 9/19/2012

The lignite does keep my tank real clean, however it still has a bit of dust. I do like the value of the lignite.
Awesome Product By Dusty on 9/9/2012

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 6/18/2012
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 5/26/2012

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!

Crystal clear water... no joke By lordofthereef on 2/12/2012
lordofthereef would recommend this product to a friend
I first purchased some of this about a year and a half ago as part of a club group buy. I had been feeding formula one pellets and noticed a greenish tint to the water. Wasn;t sure if it was algae bloom or tint, but figured this was worth a shot. Within a few hours, the water was crystal clear. At first I ran this in a TLF phosban reactor, but have since moved to a simple sock in a high flow area, which seems to be doing the trick as well.

I was a faithful Kent customer for years. The quality of BRS carbon far surpasses my former brand. In using the Lignite, I have noticed it lasts longer than Kents' product and the price point is far superior. Better quality at a lower price, can't beat it....
first time using By james on 6/15/2011

Well this is the first time I have ever used carbon like this. I liked it, not too dusty, just ran it under some RO water for a bit in the bag and put it in the sump under the return from the tank.
Clean water great value! By Jetthril on 3/30/2011

I have been using this carbon for about a year now in a mesh bag placed in the back sump of my 34 gallon solana tank. It has been a tremendous help in keeping unwanted impurities out of my system.
Just be sure to wash out the new carbon before using it, this product does come with a little dust, but it doesn't take away from the great value and performance a bit!
Get it, you won't regret it!
great for the price By brad on 3/15/2011

Crystal Clear By Kevin on 1/20/2011
Kevin would recommend this product to a friend
I have only tried this type of Activated Carbon for my tank. (150g reef). This was my first time and I tried it because I was browsing through the excellect BRS videos so I decided to try it.
I really thought my water was clear before, but after about 1-2 weeks it seems more clear. I didn't even know I needed this activated carbon, but it seems to work great.
I put the carbon in the BRS deluxe reactor and that was easy to do. I did a good rinsing before going in being careful not to rub it together and cause more dust.
In and clear, I like it. :)
