Rated 5 out of 5 by Rc4kinu Best carbon
Clears water quickly. Very little dust. No PO4 detected as promised on label. Very little amount goes a long way which offsets the higher cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JointhyRevolution Very good carbon, used over 1 year.
Have been using this carbon in my AC30 for additional filtration.(future will be used in a Tunze 9410 output ) I chose Hydrocarbon 2 pelletitized form over other types to fit my needs, which includes: little or no carbon movement in its contained desired location.
Size (good size to keep it submerged and does not float as much).
Value (reasonably priced, ill take the savings any way I can get in this hobby)
Phosphates ( i don't really trust any claims, but my phosphates are about .02-.04ppm)
I use it in a mesh bag changed every 15- 30 days. Water is clear. I practice a strict husbandry on EVERYTHING. The main reason I run carbon is for, clearer water, filter the smell of the tank and organic adsorption. Choosing carbon types depends on your application. I'm happy with Hydrocarbon 2 and will continue using it until something else catches my eye.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SaltyDog22 Large amount for price
Over all the price and amount mine 1 liter is a great deal. I use mine in reactor with two little fishies Phosban and the carbon seems to keep the water very clear No complaints Just make sure you rinse carbon in ro water before use.
