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.

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.
