AquaMaxx AquaMaxx Carbon One reduces and eliminates organic pollutants, odors and discolorations from your aquarium water. Clearer tank water allows for better light penetration into your aquarium.

Carbon One is a unique activated carbon filter media. It is an efficient coal-based carbon with a low density, high adsorbtion capacity. Less Carbon One is required when compared to bituminous carbons. AquaMaxx Carbon One features a highly developed pore structure. The macro, meso and micro pores in Carbon One adsorb both heavy and lightweight compounds as well as discolorations.

Specifications:
  • Iodine Number: 1,000
  • Molasses Number: >300
  • Moisture: 3%
  • Ash & Dust: 0.1% water soluble
  • Wash: Water Washed
Usage:
  • Rinse before use.
  • Use ½ - 1 cup for every 50 gallons of aquarium water volume.
  • Carbon One should be placed in an area where water will flow through it, like inside a canister filter, for maximum efficiency. Using a media bag is recommended.
  • Carbon One is safe to use in both fresh and saltwater aquarium systems.

This media is not very fine, so you won't have to worry about it escaping from the holes of your media bag. I recommend our Marine Depot Filter Media Bags, as these were designed for use with chemical medias like carbon.
