    Hello Aquaforest

    Can you tell me what source material is your carbon is made from, the activation process - physical or chemical, & any specs such as iodine number, & lastly the physical size of the granules.

    Thanks

    Aquaforest Carbon is steam activated - that's why it's is very porous that's why is very effective and pure - it not contains phosphates.
    Size of granules is ⌀ 4mm and over 1cm long
    1,022 iodine number mg/g (do not miss with iodine content)

    Thanks for the reply.

    What material is it made from e.g. coconut shell, lignite ?

    Different materials end up having different properties after activation.
    Some materials are better suited than others for marine aquarium water, typically based on pour size, for example.

    I'm asking Aquaforest what raw material their activated carbon is made from.
    Straight forward question. :)

    I cannot answer that one, I use it. Looked at the container and just says produced under lab conditions. :)

    Everyone has the own proprietary source and ingredients. ;)

    Hello,
    Aquaforest Carbon comes from coal.

    I thought it was pretty obvious.

    But I can stop asking the hard questions, if you want??
