    Hey all,

    I can’t find a reference for how much activated carbon to use in my tank.
    I have BRS Rox on hand and my total water volume is 350 gallons.

    Thank you,
    Sean

    1 tablespoon per 10 gallons is the dose BRS recommends for Rox in general. I don't know if Triton recommends something different.

    I was just wondering, since the emphasis is on no water changes, if the dose would be adjusted.

    I've run BRS rox and Triton carbon on my Triton system. BRS rox is more potent and requires a much smaller dose than Triton brand carbon or others. You should dose carbon as recommended by the specific carbon you're using vs. Triton's since they only off dosing guidance for their specific carbon. If you're using Rox, use the dose recommended by BRS as breadman03 mentioned.
