MicrobeLift Activated Carbon


Maximizes the removal of contaminants, helping to keep water clean and clear.

MICROBE-LIFT/Activated Carbon is a coal-based carbon for use in aquariums. Fast-acting and highly-activated, it can be used in all type filters to aggressively eliminate: odors, discoloration caused by tannins, organic debris, pollutants, and toxins, as well as medications, without releasing phosphates or causing unwanted growth.

MICROBE-LIFT/Activated Carbon attracts pollutants which "stick" to it like a magnet. Carbon cannot be reactivated like zeolite.

MICROBE-LIFT/Activated Carbon can remove some chlorine and chloramines from aquarium water. The amount of removal is based on the amount of chlorine/chloramine in the water and the amount of carbon used.
