Bio-Active Carbon has a unique pore structure designed to house beneficial bacteria which consume organic toxins; helping to stabilise its high rate of removal. If the correct conditions are present, it can additionally help remove ammonia/ammonium and nitrite. Furthermore, it also removes; toxic chlorine, chloramines, impurities, heavy metals, pungent odours and will help to clear up your water by removing the yellow tinge. It can be used in fresh and saltwater aquariums without significantly affecting pH. Our Bio-Active Carbon is made from premium-selected grades of bituminous coal specifically chosen for use in ultra-pure water sanitisation applications, originally designed for human consumption. It will not leach toxic compounds and has a large size which improves hydrodynamics and makes it easier to use.
