I stopped using carbon in my tanks, as I was tired of paying twenty or thirty bucks for a couple pounds of carbon. Then, I saw this and thought too good to be true, but if it does not work I am only out 5 bucks. Well, it works! It has only been in my tanks for a few hours and the water clarity is already amazing. Also, that slight odor that even a well cycled and maintained tank can develop is fading, gotta love that!
Update: I used some of the carbon in my newt tank, and have seen a huge increase in their activity level (never seen newts this active). They apparently love the improved water conditions.
Also, I tried a little in the cat's litter box, and was very happy with the results. Bottom line. . . it is good stuff!!

I had several places that I wanted to used the activated carbon to try to remove some troublesome odors. I placed bowls in several spots in my unfinished basement and after several days, that "basement smell" had totally disappeared. This works great if you want to take away unpleasant odors.

I've been buying carbon for the last 15 years. I have tried the really expensive stuff and as far as I can tell it all does the same thing.

The higher cost product is chopped up into tiny chunks whereas this is in pellet form. One of these days I'm going to try smashing it up to see if that makes any difference but I seriously doubt that it will.

This is a great value I paid 3.99 per bag I ordered 5 bags at a time to save on shipping. (it was 5.99 regardless of how many bags you buy)

That will last me a whole year and all for under $30!

______________update_______________________

just for fun I "blended" a bag in my wife's Kitchenaid blender. it did a pretty good job of breaking all the pcs. down to no more than a little over 1/8". This creates about 10% waste as it does turn some of it to dust. (no more than 5 seconds)

I have experimented with it in a few tanks and from what I can tell it does make the carbon more efficient or more accurately more aggressive at removing discoloration or smell.

So I will keep playing with it but it seems like the smaller broken up pcs are best for emergency cleanup when you wait too long in between water or filter changes.

I would also venture to say that because the smaller pcs. act quicker they probably "fill up" or exhaust their cleaning power that much faster as well.

still very happy with the value of this carbon.

Fast shipping, item as described. Bought to air out a used car that was owned by a smoker - worked wonders.

I use activated carbon in my aquarium filters and in my koi pond filters as a chemical filter to help clear the water, remove odor, and remove ammonia and nitrites. I simply place the carbon inside bath scouring balls, which help with the mechanical and biological part of the filtering, and then just place the carbon-filled scouring ball or balls in the filters. My aquariums and pond are always clean with no fishy smell, and my ammonia and nitrite levels are in check.

When I got this I was expecting the small round pellets but it is long sticks which doesn't effect its performance. I use it in my forever filter for my drinkwell 360 and I have to break them up to put them in my filter but that is easy and it still works well. It allows water to flow more smoothly and cleans it well. This was definitely a great buy because of how cheap it was an dwell it gets the job done. I would definitely recommend it to others.

The activated carbon pellets arrived just fine and in a timely manner. They are actually broken up sticks and not the small pellets or granuals I expected, however they will work just fine if not better for my pond application. This is a good thing because I odered back-up bags.
