Dymax Active Carbon is a chemical filtration media that treats water and remove impurities, eliminates smell, improve colour and remove chemicals in aquarium water. With twice the ability than ordinary carbon, this PH-Neutral Active Carbon breaks down carbolic acid, tannic acid and chlorine in tap water. Suitable for most filtration and ideal in fresh water environments. Activated carbon works by using absorption and adsorption. Absorption is the process by which pollutants are trapped in the pores of the carbon (you can think of this process as a molecular-sized mechanical filter). Adsorption occurs because the carbon has a large surface area (with all the pores) and, therefore, many chemical bonding sites. Adsorption is the process by which pollutants are chemically bonded to these sites and trapped by the carbon. It is important to understand that there are several important toxins that activated carbon does not remove. Most notably, it does not move ammonia, nitrite, or nitrate. Therefore, it does not aide in toxin removal during the initial aquarium setup. 500g package.
