Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® API FilStar Super Activated Carbon Information




Canister filter media designed to fit the FilStar XP. A high quality carbon for removal of dissolved organic wastes, foul odors and colors from fresh and saltwater.

Super Activated Carbon - for fresh and salt water:
  • Manufactured specifically for aquarium use
  • Removes dissolved organics, odors, colors, toxins, medications and much more
  • Will not raise phosphate levels in the aquarium
  • Will not affect pH
  • Safe and effective for all types of aquariums, even sensitive reef systems
The highest grade of activated carbon made especially for filtering aquarium water. It has 5 times the adsorptive power of standard charcoal. Super Activated Carbon removes dissolved organic waste that stresses tropical fish and discolors aquarium water.


Specifications

Directions for use in RENA® FilStar Filters:
  • Remove Super Activated Carbon pouch from plastic bag.
  • DO NOT open Super Activated Carbon pouch. One 285 g pouch should be used for every 55 U.S. gallons (208 L) of aquarium water.
  • It is important to rinse Super Activated Carbon pouch under tap water to remove any dust. The rinse water does not have to run completely clear.
  • Place filter pouch directly in FilStar filtration basket after (above) filter foams.
  • Replace pouch every 1 to 3 months, depending on stocking density and water quality.
Use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Test Kits to monitor water quality weekly. Super Activated Carbon is designed for use with all Filstar filtration media.

Comments: 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.
