AquaMaxx AquaMaxx Rox 0.8 Activated Carbon reduces and eliminates organic pollutants, odors and discolorations from aquarium water. It is the highest grade acid washed extruded carbon available on the market today. The ultra-porous nature results in a fast-acting carbon that absorbs much more contaminants and impurities than any other carbon available.

Features
  • Steam activated and acid washed to produce the highest quality carbon
  • Low dust content that is easier and quick to rinse
  • Both large and small pores for maximum adsorption range
  • Small pellet size for maximized surface area
Specifications
  • Iodine Number: 1000min.
  • Ball-Pan Hardness: 97min.
  • Particle Size <0.6mm, MASS-%: 0.5max.
  • Iron (ACID EXTR.), MASS-%: 0.02max.
  • Moisture (AS PACKED), MASS-%: 5max.
  • PH: Neutral
Directions
Rinse before use. Use ¼ - ½ cup for every 50 gallons of aquarium water volume. You can place loose media inside a reactor for maximum efficiency. When using a media bag, place in an area where water will flow through it or inside a canister filter. Safe to use in both fresh and saltwater aquarium systems.

Q
what micron media bag would you use for this product?
I purchased this product to use in a media bag but i am unsure of what kind of media bag to purchase. I also purchased the aquamaxx phosphate out pro and was wondering what to use for that as well. Thank you for your time,

You can use Boyd Chemi Bags (Item# BE2111), for the GFO you would want to use a fluidized media (up-flow) reactor. You would need a ball valve to regulate the flow through the granules.

There are certain brands that carry carbon that when exposed to water leeches a lot dust and makes the water black and dark and that's understandable because of all the grinding from transportation but when I put this in my media reactor it was very minimal amount of dust or dark water to the point ...Read More
