Great carbon

I have a Rena FilStar xP3 on my turtle tank and only need to change this carbon every 3-4 weeks when using 1 packet. Turtles are notoriously messy, but this carbon keeps the water clear and odor-free with little effort. It's more expensive than bulk carbon, but it comes with the added convenience of being pre-measured in its' own filter sock.
