... little over a year now and it has worked great for me
on March 24, 2016
I have been using this product in my biocube 14 for a little over a year now and it has worked great for me. I have this placed in the second compartment in my biocube 14 filter. I don't have a media basket or anything. I use this along with live rock, purigen, and some filter floss in the second compartment of my biocube. I replace it every 5 months or so. I have to say I am not 100% sure that this is the reason for the success of my little biocube, but I have to admit that my tank stays very clean. I have not had too many algae outbreaks. This product contains activated carbon and gfo. The activated carbon helps remove the toxins from the aquarium while the gfo helps to remove any phosphates that may promote algae growth. One of the main issues that I have with this product is that it takes a while to rinse out and clean the carbon initially. It never completely washes out while rinsing in tap water. I usually only wash it for a minuet or two and then place it in my tank. Once placed in the tank however, it does not leach any carbon or anything that I can see. Overall, great product
-small size, great for a nano tank
-takes a while to rinse out.
