A POWERFUL COMBINATION OF AMMONIA REMOVAL AND DISSOLVED CONTAMINATES ABSORPTION IN ONE CONVENIENT PACK

Coconut shell is the best option for activated carbon media in aquarium filters. The density of micro-pores is significantly higher in coconut than in all other forms of activated carbon, providing more surface area and general porosity. By way of comparison, it contains 50% more micro-pores than bituminous coal (which is the source material for 99% of activated carbons available to the aquarium market). This makes coconut far superior in adsorbing volatile organic chemicals and substances which are difficult to remove from water.

    For freshwater use only.

Zeolites are widely used as adsorbents or ion-exchange media in aquariums, drinking water, groundwater and wastewater treatments. Natural Australian Zeolites are used to remove ammonium ions and metal contaminants such as iron, manganese, calcium, and heavy metals (e.g., arsenic, lead, copper, mercury, silver, chromium, zinc, cadmium).

DIRECTIONS – *NOT FOR SALT WATER USE*

1) Rinse before use to remove fine particles.

2) Fill your media bag/sock of choice or place loose in your filter.

3) It is recommended to be positioned between mechanical filtration media (eg. foam) and rings or biological media in the filter.

4) As zeolite+carbon loses its effectiveness over time, in particular if exposed to large quantities of debris and/or ammonia, it is recommended to replace the product as needed.

Please note: Activated carbon will absorb many medications used to treat fish disease. It is recommended to remove carbon from your filter during the course of treatment. Once treatment is completed, it is safe to add activated carbon to the filter and it will remove any residual medication remaining in the water column.
