Yes, I would recommend this.

Easy to use, comes with media bag

Pros: Comes with Media Bag

Cons: N/a

I ordered this in addition to the filter media that came with my Fuval Evo 13.5 gallon tank. I did not realize the carbon already came with a media bag inside the container, a nice surprise. This works well and fits nicely in the same area as my other media.

Had a skimmer overflow with all the nasty on it and saw my tank yellowish and drop this product on my filter cup and within minutes water turns to clear. I only use filter cup and a mesh sock. On a reefer 350.
