TRITON Treatments have been developed to fix specific problems commonly faced by aquarists. Unlike many
products on the market TRITON Treatments are quality controlled and free from contamination by unwanted / unknown elements.
- Activated Carbon is designed for uptake of toxins and other unwanted molecules
- Lab tested at Triton Labs to ensure purity
- Two use options:
- Place carbon in media bag and placed in a high flow area
- Place carbon in media reactor, with low flow to prevent media tumbling
- Should be rinsed thoroughly with RODI water before use
- Recommended use = 100 ml per 100 liters (26 gallons)
- Replace every 4 to 6 weeks
- 1 x 1000 ml carton of Activated Carbon
To learn more about the TRITON Method, check out our blog posts below:
Triton Applied Reef Bioscience was founded to take the mystery out of reefkeeping by empowering aquarists to test their sea water, know what is actually in it, and use scientific advice to fix water quality problems before they arise.
Their ground breaking application of HPLC and ICP-OES techniques to reef keeping came from in-house research and development by TRITON LAB. When combined with their range of highly pure supplements and treatments developed by TRITON REAGENTS, we arrive at the heart of what separates TRITON from the competition. They empower hobbyists with the knowledge of what is actually in their seawater, and give them the control to fix it, with accuracy and precision.
But they didn’t stop there. Because Triton are chemists AND reef keepers, they wanted this solution to be available to everyone. So they created the TRITON METHOD: an easy-to-follow recipe so anyone can have the beauty and tranquility of a living coral reef in their own home.

Yes, I would recommend this.
It does the job
Pros: Keep my water clear and odor-free
Cons: More expensive than other carbon media
I decided to try Triton's carbon filter media after seeing improvement in my mixed reef aquarium using Triton test kits and Core7 supplements. Triton carbon is more expensive than ROX, but when I experience success with a company's products I tend to gravitate toward trying other things from that brand ... so I kind of put that out of my mind before I bought it. My general impression after using it for these past few months is positive. I think I am more regular with my aquarium maintenance and testing than the average reefer, so truth be told I haven't noticed much difference between using this carbon and the AquaMaxx stuff I was using before. Perhaps carbon is just carbon at the end of day. In any case, I will probably stick with it since I am a big fan of the brand and all they do to advance our hobby. You should always rinse the media before using it although I don't find this carbon to be any dirtier than any other I've tried in the past. I use the media in a bag, not a reactor, and replace the media once a month when I do my water change.
