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.

Life the GFO this product is great in clearing up merky water and removing odor. Only takes a quick rinse to begin using. Perfect size particles for my dual reactor. Using this in combination with AquaMaxx GFO is fantastic for any reef tank.

trouble with phosban 150

REVIEW
size of the carbon grains are to small. Floats to the top inside of a phosban 150 reactor. Go with a bigger sized carbon maybe matrix carbon. Other than that its carbon does what its supposed to. Just go with a good brand if you want better reactor performance.
