Details

Our Aquarium Blend is the same granular activated carbon used by the largest manufacturer of aquariums in America. For good reason. Its unique meso-pore size distribution removes colors (tannins), dyes, odors, medication (antibiotics), dissolved organics, heavy metals, chlorine, other toxic compounds, leaving your aquarium smelling fresh and and crystal clear. Activated Charcoal for reef fish

This is a granular activated carbon produced by a high temperature steam activation process under stringent quality control. It has a large surface area, high mechanical hardness, unique pore size distribution, low density and chemical stability. Recommended filter grade carbon for aquarium water purification. This is a coal-based activated carbon.

Activated charcoal removes ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, and inorganic salts (like sodium chloride) poorly. For these, other specialized resins are required.

Changing Schedule: The length of time before changing your charcoal will depend on your stocking level. A lightly stocked and lightly fed tank could go about 1 month or 2 before the carbon is changed. A heavily populated or highly fed aquarium may be best with carbon changes of every 2-4 weeks. Remember, changing out your activated charcoal is not a substitute for large and frequent water changes.
