    HydroCarbon 2 is a granular activated carbon designed specifically for the purification of water. It has an extremely porous texture which makes it ideal for both fresh and saltwater aquariums and does not leach phosphates into the water, which can cause outbreaks of algae. This activated carbon absorbs both large and small molecular pollutants such as the defense substances released into the water by both soft and stony corals and will also pull out the water-yellowing tannic and humic compounds.

    Ideal for use in many applications including power filters, canister filters, and wet/dry filters & sumps. After months of use it also becomes a very active biological filtration community full of beneficial bacteria and microorganisms. It can thus be used as a biological nitrification and denitrification media, or to seed new aquariums with active bacteria cultures.

    For more information on chemical filtration, please see our article on Aquarium Filter Maintenance.

    Directions: Use approx. 125 ml (half cup) per 50 gallons. Entire contents will effectively treat 400 gallons. Pour the required quantity into a polyester or nylon media bag. Rinse the carbon by immersing the closed bag into a container of tap water. Shake the bag underwater and lift and immerse it again repeatedly in order to wash out most of the carbon fines.
