3.0 lbs - Premium Activated Carbon Aquarium Filter Charcoal Media - Remove odors

  • SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE! Our premium carbon has been super cleaned and is hungry to rapidly trap contaminants and toxins from your aquarium water. This is great for you because you will have a clearer, odor free aquarium while the exceptional water quality will help your aquatic friends thrive.

  • BREAKTHROUGH! A huge problem with other aquarium activated carbon is that the pores are packed with ash that a simple rinse will not wash away; these pores should be clear and clean. This problem is solved with our carbon! How? After heat activation, our carbon goes through a rigorous cleaning to deep clean the pores. You never have to suffer buying unclean carbon.

  • ELIMINATES ODOR AND DISCOLORATION! Our activated carbon, also known as activated charcoal, removes foul odors from aquarium water leaving a crisp clean smell. Our active carbon has large internal surface area which rapidly adsorbs dissolved pollutants from water including yellow-brown tint, toxins, chlorine, most medications, and some heavy metals. Our Premium carbon works best in our Fine Mesh Filter Media Bags (included) or similar bag.

  • CLEANER AND LAST LONGER! When rinsing typical carbon everything can get covered in black dust including your hands and sink. Our premium carbon makes rinsing easy since we clean and wash out a majority of the dust and fines. What makes our carbon last longer is our exclusive cleaning opens up large surface areas inside each granule allowing it to trap more organic compounds.

For best results, use our FINE MESH MEDIA BAG. Simply add 1/2 cup per 40 gallons of aquarium water. 


QUESTION: This carbon is tiny does it require a special mesh media bag?
ANSWER: Yes, it requires a very fine mesh media bag. You can use our Fine Mesh Filter Media Drawstring Bags or a similar tiny mesh bag option.

QUESTION: Why does your carbon have moisture in the bottle?
ANSWER: Our premium carbon goes through a cleaning solution to remove trapped ash, then through a final cleaning bath. After this, most of the
water is drained and the product is packaged to ensure freshness.

QUESTION: Why does your premium carbon weigh more than similar size containers?
ANSWER: Our premium carbon is intentionally crushed to a small size to allow for greater surface area. The smaller fragments pack tighter leaving less
gaps compared to larger carbon pieces. Additional weight is the result of some moisture left over from the special cleaning baths.

QUESTION: Is it necessary to rinse your carbon?
ANSWER: Yes, during shipment carbon pieces rub against each other and may produce dust. A short rinse under tap or RO water will rinse away this dust.
