I tried these carbon pellets in a small quantity just to see if they worked as well as the crumbled carbon I've always used in the past, but very expensive. The water in my 100 gallon and 30 gallon aquariums is so clear it's amazing! I also did a lot of research about the pellets versus crumbles and got nothing but positive reviews for the pellets, that they work just as well as the crumbles. When I saw this 50 lb bag at That Fish Place for $40 bucks I jumped at it. It was delivered in a box, somewhat torn out on one corner, but no damage to the heavy weight woven bag of carbon. The delivery man brought it to our front door which was great because we live way back in the woods from the front road. I used some of this in our bird bath filter where our outdoor cats get their water too. It stays sparkling clean. I poured the contents of the bag into a large rubbermaid tote with tight fitting lid, so it's easy to access and I love having all the carbon I could possibly need for the next few years. I no longer have to stretch the ridiculously expensive crumbled type until my aquarium water is iffy again.
Large pellets seem to work as well as granular carbon. The dust factor is greatly reduced. The bulk pricing can't be beat.
I would like to say that this is not bad carbon for the price. It is not the best carbon I have ever used. But I will not complain for the price.

I USED THE LARGE PELLETS IN THREE PONDS I HAVE AND I NOTICED THE WATER IS NICE AND CLEAR AND THE FISH ARE EATING BETTER , PERHAPS THE CARBON ABSORBED SOME OF THE WASTE BIO PRODUCTS,
Pellets Are The Way To Go
by Tom Keller
I run four large tanks, all with their custom filters I built. Buying this in bulk saves me money and hassles. The pellets are perfect fit for the filter bags and last longer than the granular kind.
Third bag failed
I bought two bags previously to use in mesh bags for aquarium filtration and they worked well. However, the last time I bought bag (2 months ago), they dissolved as I rinsed them before putting them in the filter. I went ahead and put them in the filtration system, and they continued to dissolve. Too bad, because I haven’t found another inexpensive, high volume source of carbon. Hope they figure this out.
