low dust(not really) Product Review by 8251reefer (Posted on 12/27/08)
Rating
Below Average

Comments: Sorry to say but this carbon if left in a bag and placed in your sump with water flowing over it will cause a great deal of fine black dust to collect on everything in the sump. I rinsed this stuff forever and it still did it. It is not a good feeling having to get your 8 year old to reach into your skimmer and clean the sides. I really think he was scared. Anyways, I would not recommend this product sorry...

good carbon granules too small Product Review by JASON (Posted on 8/9/08)

Comments: the carbon granules fell out of my mesh bag, most of it stayed in the mesh but more than I have ever seen fell out of the small mesh bag I used.

No Dust Product Review by GUY (Posted on 4/19/08)

Excellent!

Comments: So Far, I would rate this product as Excellent.
I prepared my first bag to go into my system, poured it into the bag and rinsed it, the dust was gone in two seconds and the carbon was clean. I have never seen carbon rinse clean that fast before. I am sold.
I Do recommend a fine mesh bag, the grain size is small.

Great, but very tiny particles Product Review by Leandrae (Posted on 4/6/08)

Great!

Comments: An excellent product however it has very tiny particles and therefor if used in a media bag, make sure it is a very fine bag. I used it the other night for the first time, not realizing how tiny the bits were and I now have little black speckles all over my tank.

I would recommend for use in a reactor, but caution when used in a media bag.

Works well Product Review by BEN TARLECKY (Posted on 4/2/08)

Excellent!

Comments: It is a finer carbon then most so more fits in your reactor. I use it in my magnavore reactor and it works perfect, not a ton of dust to rinse out either.
