ReefGrow uses the purest activated carbon known to man, coconut shell. Not all carbon is created equal there are many factors which contribute to activated carbons effectiveness, such as how much oxygen and what temperature the furnace is for example.
Once ReefGrow Carbon Pure has passed all quality control each batch is then pre-washed. This means unlike other carbon medias, after a single simple rinse black carbon dust is virtually gone and ready for use.
Activated carbon is very beneficial in removing unwanted pollutants and polishing your aquariums water column. Any beneficial items which might be filtered out can be easily added back with daily dosing of ReefGrow additives and supplements.
Still recommend to raise as the carbon does create dust during shipping
