Activated Carbon is excellent for removing odours, chemicals and dyes.
Used as a filter in a vessel through which water is pumped, the pellets are most effective in removing organic contaminants which are often responsible for odour and colour problems. Particularly useful in removing chlorine from mains water.
Activated Carbon will not, however, remove nitratrates, Fluoride and hardness. The material allows trouble free use in aquaria and general aquaculture applications.
However, we do recommend that before use, the pellets are thoroughly rinsed in water to remove any residual dust and the final rinse water checked for ph level.
For best results replace every 3-4 weeks. When using medications remove carbon, rinse thoroughly before use
