It is specifically designed to remove the size of contaminants found in freshwater and saltwater aquariums. It has a very low affinity to those items that are important for the aquarium such as inorganic salts (i.e., nutrients).
It’s performance has been shown to outcompete ROX 0.8 and the leading synthetic adsorbent material.
Available only in 1/4 gallon size.
