Super Activated Carbon


I use this Carbon in my extra large Filstar Canister. I have a 175 gallon tank.
Every two weeks, I take it out and rinse it in aquarium water, which is in a bucket, and put it back in on the opposite side from which it was.
My fish water is great, no odor and very clean. I know that there is a lot of controversy
about charcoal, but, I for one would not give it up. I put a new one in every month and for me it is a blessing. No fuss, no muss.

Great Price


Can't beat this price anywhere. Even the regular price is excellent
