Black Diamond® Premium Activated Carbon eliminates discoloration, odors, and impurities...and keeps on doing it long after other carbons quit.

Heat-activated bituminous coal-based Black Diamond granules are specially sized and far more efficient than inferior coconut, wood or peat-based carbons. Premium Black Diamond works as much as twice as fast as the competition. 

Black Diamond Aquarium Carbon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.

I read a study that showed that carbon "activated" (baked) at different temperatures had different adsorption profiles for different chemicals. Wondering at what temperature this carbon is baked.

Asked by: landshark
It does indeed. 3000 degrees is what we bake ours at which makes it extremely porous and effective. BREX
