For Use in Canister Filters and Sumps:
Pour the desired amount of Ultra Carbon into a Fine Mesh or 200um String media bag and close securely, Prior to use, rinse with RO/DI or dechlorinated tap water to remove dust from storage and transport. Pleace into canister filter as you whould other filtration media. For use in a sump, place in an area with high flow and away from pump intake.
For Use in a Dedicated Media Reactor:
Ensure your reactor is appropriate for carbon. Add the desired amount of media to your reactor. A coarse/fine sponge should be placed above and below Ultra Carbon to prevent tumbling of the media. Excessive movement can cause the media to pulverize into a fine dust which may enter the aquarium.
