Activated Carbon Charcoal
Granulated carbon is an ideal filter media for all aquarium tank filters. Our activated carbon is granulated, meaning it has a higher surface area than pelleted carbon so not only does it have a greater effectiveness, you also get more carbon for your money!
Activated Carbon is a form of carbon that has been produced with extremely high micro porosity. Carbon is good at binding to most elements and molecules which means that when fluids are passed through it or over it, contaminates or pollutants contained within the water will be caught by the carbon improving the purity of the water.
Usage: Activated Carbon is most commonly used to filter water used in ponds and aquariums. It should be added to a media bag or holder which is placed in direct contact with the water. The water should then be passed through it continuously until the water is contaminant and pollutant free. We recommend flushing the activated carbon with fresh water before using. Activated Carbon can be used in internal and external filter bags or containers. It's suitable for fresh or marine water aquariums or ponds.
