Fluval carbon is very pure activated carbon that is ideal in both fresh and salt water. The inner matrix structure provides a large porous area that permanently traps organic waste while removing liquid wastes such as urine, dyes or many other impurities from the water. The result is sparkling clear aquarium water.
Premium research-grade, low-ash, and highly porous Fluval Carbon provides large amounts of surface area for adsorbtion of impurities. It effectively removes heavy metals, odors, discolorations, organic contaminants and pollutants to leave your aquarium water crystal clear and sparkling. Fluval Carbon does not raise phosphate levels.
How to use Activated Carbon?
Activated Carbon is most commonly used to filter water used in ponds and aquariums. It should be added to a media bag or holder which is placed in direct contact with the water. The water should then be passed through it continuously until the water it contaminate and pollutant free. We recommend flushing the activated carbon with fresh water before using. Activated Carbon can be used in internal and external filter bags or containers. It’s suitable for fresh or marine water aquariums or ponds.
