High performance activated carbon for crystal clear water in fresh-water and salt-water aquariums.
  • Highly active.
  • PH-balanced.
  • In pellet form to reduce dust and fine grains.
  • Lowest phosphate concentration in the industry.
Problems with hair algae or poor coral growth can be caused by the release of phosphate (PO4) from impure activated carbons with High PO4 levels – sometimes as high as 14.0. Phosphate is known to promote the growth of all types of nuisance algae as well as interfere with the proper growth of stony corals.

Polyplab Pro Carbon is distinguished by its exceptionally low PO4 level of only 1.3.

Directions for use:

Before use, rinse Polyplab Pro Carbon with fresh, clean water to remove carbon dust. Polyplab Pro Carbon should be placed between layers of fine filter media and added to an area in your sump with good water motion.

Polyplab Pro Carbon can also be used very efficiently in an external filter.

For Ozone removal:

Polyplab Pro Carbon can also be used as a long term filter to ensure the proper capture of excess ozone. 100 to 300 ml of Polypab Pro Carbon should be installed directly after the protein skimmer.

For removing yellow coloration from water:

Use 500 ml of Polyplab Pro carbon for 1000 liters (220 imperial gallons, 264 U.S gallons) of aquarium water. Polyplab Pro Carbon should remain in the filter/sump for approx. 2 to 4 days. Strong staining of the aquarium water, from organic bark or peat can be dealt with by increasing the quantity of carbon used.

For use in salt water/reef systems.

Polyplab Pro Carbon should be employed for only 1 to 2 days. The procedure should be repeated every four weeks or at regular intervals to maintain proper water quality.

For use following treatment with medication:

Use approx. 400 ml of Polyplab Pro Carbon to 500 liters (110 imperial gallons, 132 U.S. gallons) of aquarium water for both salt-water and fresh-water applications. Remove Carbon after 5 to 7 days.


Activated carbon will absorb many beneficial compounds such as plant fertilizers, trace elements and iodine, it is therefore recommended to re dose these additives after the application of activated carbon.

Please note: This product is not suitable for reuse once removed.
