Blue Life Classic Carbon Information




Benefits:

Classic Activated Carbons prime application is as a purifier and clarifier. It is a highly effective absorbent with a large internal surface area. Its vast porous structure allows it to catch unwanted contaminants from all aquaria. Its major treatment objective is the removal of dissolved organics as well as suspended solids and residual oxidants (chlorine and ozone). In addition, Classic Activated Carbon will aid in the removal of odor organics, micro pollutants and medications.

Directions:

For best results use ½ lb for every 50 gallons (189 liters) of aquarium water. Classic Activated Carbon has not been washed with chemicals, acids, or hydroxides. Therefore, it is necessary to thoroughly rinse with cold water. Following this rinsing process we recommend placing the carbon in a filter media bag. Place in high flow area of filter to maximize water flow through the media. For best results, replace carbon at least once per month. Classic Activated Carbon is ideal for use in all types of power filters, wet dry filters, canister or modular filters.

Waste of money! Product Review by otsao (Posted on 2/26/14)

Below Average

Comments: The water in my 125 gal fish only tank was starting to get yellow. I knew it was time to replace the carbon. I was out of what I normally use so I bought this product. I filled my sea clear (nu clear) with this carbon. It ran for almost two weeks without a change. I finally replaced the carbon with clear for life - triple activated carbon, and within a day, my tank was sparkling clear! I would stay away from this product.

Small reding of Phosphate Product Review by MONDO (Posted on 7/16/10)

Average

Comments: There's a small reading of phosphate in this carbon. I use this in (2) Two Little fishes Phosban reactor 150 pumped with a maxijet 400 wide open. One is in my Reef Tank the other is in my Turtle tank. I use this to control odor in my reef and I have another reactor for the phosphate problem, until I find another Carbon. In fresh water, phosphate is not an issue. This carbon keeps the water clear a little less than a month which is a lot in a turtle tank. Rinsing is easy in the 150 reactor, just turn on the pump in a bucket full of water, and wait till the water runs clear. I give it 3 stars because I bought this for my Reef tank but ended up using it for freshwater. Cheap Carbon Pellets for 5 lbs. I tested phosphate with Salifert phosphate test kit.

Great Value Product Review by CHARLES BOBEK (Posted on 12/20/09)

Great!

Comments: Compared to "simlar" produts a great performer. Pore size in carbon 50 - 200 micron. Perfect for VOC absorbtion and entrapment at < 1/2 the cost. Don't be fooled by fancy labels and marketing of other products. After 2 weeks my 240 gal reef tank hand NOTICABLY healthier livestock(s) - especially the softs. Charcoal should be a regular part of the filtration strategy for reef tanks - but it does not have to be as costly.

Leaches PO4 Product Review by JOHN FORDHAM (Posted on 3/1/09)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Does leach phospate, rinsing reduces this but it will continue to leach as long as you run it. Thank goodness I can use this in the air outlet of my skimmer collection cup to reduce odors, all it is good for is air filtration.
