    Great product

    By JunoLouise on Dec 11, 2020

    Sadly, I no longer have fishies since we hit the road in our RV full time. I use this charcoal to stuff old socks to stash in closets, drawers, and cargo compartments, and it works great for that. The bay where we stow our pupper supplies no longer reeks of old dog foot. LOL. I also use it in the bottom of our planter pots.

    Use this in my house plants. It's nice and fine and much better buy than the little container from the store.

    Good buy but a lot of work

    By Kadotah on Jun 12, 2020

    Great deal for the money but be prepared to spend 20-30 minutes rinsing then gravel. There’s an unbelievable amount of dust in the package.

    Activated Carbon

    By Ktorlando on Dec 28, 2019

    Works great in any tank size, more cost effective to refill and wash out the bags in filters rather than the pre-filled bags. Lasts much longer with a greater volume when you fill and refill yourself.
