FILTER MEDIA - ACTIVATED CARBON

By ESV 

Carbon Filter Media helps clarify your water, remove harmful ions, and freshen the smell of your tank. Some people even place a bag of carbon over their skimmer collection cup to absorb the odor.

ESV's Granular Activated Carbon based on bituminous coal provides the best combination of pore size, large particle size, high surface area, low ash, and hardness for chemically filtering aquarium water. In addition, test results indicate no leaching of phosphates. The high hardness level of this carbon prevents the dispersion of particles throughout the aquarium which can occur with softer grades of carbon. The large particle size facilitates water movement through the carbon and helps prevent the removal of planktonic food organisms via mechanical filtration.
