Reef Carbon Features:

  • Low Ash -- suitable for sensitive species such as Discus
  • Large pore size
  • Highly activated -- Economical -- use less for same results
  • Will not release phosphates nor promote undesirable algae growth
  • Will not clog easily
  • 1qt treats 400gal

Reef Carbon Directions:
Reef Carbon is dusty. This is a necessary characteristic of the finest carbons and is a small price to pay for a carbon that is so active, low in phosphates, and ash, so rinse well in cold running tap water. This will take some effort. IN THE AQUARIUM: Place in a polyester bag or filter chamber and position for maximum water flow through the carbon. IMPORTANT: You can use as any other carbon, but best results will be obtained by using any carbon for only 3 days per month or so. (This is because any carbon will continue to remove trace elements long after it is totally plugged with organics.) Use only enough to remove the color from the water.
