    Why does BRS recommend this?

    When it comes to filter carbon we are pretty picky and wouldn’t recommend any ordinary carbon.  The ROX carbon in our opinion is the best carbon on the market, only requiring half as much as most standard carbons. It may cost a little more upfront, however being able to use less and see faster and better results more thanmakes up for this.  Also, with its super low dust content, rinsing is quick and doesn’t require much water at all.

    BRS Bulk Premium ROX 0.8 Aquarium Carbon offers superior absorption, less dust, and pristine water clarity. Typically used by pharmaceutical companies to create ultra-pure water. The wide variety of pore sizes makes it the best aquarium carbon available to remove yellowing pigments, contaminants and irritants from your tank.

    ROX 0.8 is a specialty carbon extruded into tiny, extremely hard pellets resulting in less dust and reducing the amount of fines released into the water. It features high numbers of large and small pores giving it all the advantages of both lignite and bituminous carbons. ROX 0.8 will make your water crystal clear faster with less material.

    BRS purchases our carbon directly from the manufacturer so we can offer the best carbon at reasonable prices. While most companies claim their carbon is the best, our statement is backed with true science and real numbers. Carbon is not created equal. Different sizes, shapes, and materials will perform with drastically varying results.

     

    Recommended Dosage: 1 tablespoon per 10 gallons, or use our Reef Calculator for hassle-free dosage recommendations.
