a nice carbon product featured

Comments I like this carbon for intermittent use. I've had this stuff on hand for a while, having bought it in a large quantity during a group buy in the past. If kept well sealed, it does last unused indefinitely. This product is good for any time you want a little extra filtration, either due to a long time since the last maintenance, your dosing medication or other intermittent supplement, or some other chemicals are leaching into your system (I've had this occur during times when I'm painting in the home, and the carbon helps keep the skimmer under control and gives me a bit more piece of mind).


Liked about it This product is well packaged and relatively easy to use. I do recommend rinsing this product before use (as instructed), which I do with just tap water. It rinses pretty quickly and doesnt leave much residue behind after use. I've always used it in a media reactor to force water through the carbon. I've found it works well at clearing the water of impurities, and it also helps with making the water a bit clearly (in my experience, from both eliminating particles floating in the water column as well as removing yellowing impurities).


Didn't like About the only real negative of this is that this is not a large container, so if you use this regularly it will be gone soon. It could be cost prohibitive if used in large quantities or simply on large systems. If you can find it in larger quantities, I'd highly recommend getting it and keeping some on hand for those contingency scenarios.

A good choice for Carbon

Comments Honestly I have tried many different carbons and they have been all alike at least I have not seen any difference in them
Marineland black diamond fits into that category too. It is cheap and available from just about anywhere. Carbon is so versatile. You can just dump it in a bag and throw it in your sump and it works. or to get a little more effectiveness from it run it in a reactor. You have to be careful with it in a reactor because it can easily get pulverized into dust. carbon is essential for most aquariums. Fro one it clarifies the water and absorbs toxins.

I did like this products and it worked very well for me. Keeping SPS and leather in the same tank it is essential for me to run carbon in high quantity. I have found that for me I now bulk in bulk and use about a gallon every few months.


Liked about it Easy to use and versatile.
Rinses easily.
Very effective for clear water.


Didn't like There was nothing I disliked about this product specifically. I went to bulk carbon because of the amout I use and the proce tag.

Pretty good quality for the price.

Comments This carbon performs a bit better then the cheaper brands. It will polish the water to some degree but not as much as the more expensive stuff. I buy it cause you can find it just about anywhere and the it has less dust then a lot of the bargain brands. I only use this in my oscar tanks because they are messy eaters and can quickly destroy you water quality. You still need to clean it a good bit before you add it to the tank but like I mentioned earlier it is better then the store brands.


Liked about it Size is consistent. Less dust then cheaper brands. Easy to find and the price is good for what you get.


Didn't like It has less dust but to me it still has a good bit. Does not last as long as the premium brands.

Fair value carbon

Comments This has helped my water quality to some degree. I was not using carbon for awhile and decided to start again to see if there was a difference. My water is somewhat clearer at this time.


Liked about it I bought the large container for some cost savings and can't complain about the price for the quality. There was minimal dust.


Didn't like The container was difficult to pour into a mesh bag. There were no instructions for use on the container.

A good mid grade carbon

General A good midgrade carbon that is often the best choice available on many websites and local fish stores. I have always had some on hand to use for the last 8 or so years.


Liked about it low dust
fair price
widely available


Didn't like Doesn't seem to work as fast as some pricier or specialty bulk carbons
