BULK  GAC - ESV's Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) based on bituminous coal provides the best combination of pore size, large particle size, high surface area, low ash, and hardness for chemically filtering aquarium water. In addition, test results indicate no leaching of phosphates. The high hardness level of this carbon prevents the dispersion of particles throughout the aquarium which can occur with softer grades of carbon. The large particle size facilitates water movement through the carbon and helps prevent the removal of planktonic food organisms via mechanical filtration. Usage: 1/2 cup per 40 gallons (1 cup per 40 gallons for tanks without protein skimmers) replace monthly.

I agree with other reviews, the granules of this carbon are too fine and there is too much dust. It is suitable for most reactors. However, I also have a mesh plastic box in the sump and this carbon just goes through the mesh. Lots of dust too. Will opt for something else next time.

I use phosban 150 plus Maxijet 1200 with this carbon. It depletes fast! 1 week and the reactor starts to clogue unlike other brands that could last for 2-3 weeks! If it's more coarse I think it would be better.
