- Phosphate-free carbon substitute
- High pore for maximum organic removal
- Ideal to use in planted or marine tank - does not leach phosphate
- No impact on trace minerals and important nutrients
Renew is ideal for use in systems where phosphate released from all activated carbons poses a problem. Renew is also less aggressive than carbon, making it well suited for reefs and planted aquaria. It is also beneficial for use in soft water aquaria where the pH-raising property of many carbons is not an asset. Renew will remove organics and particulates in the sub-micron range; it will also help control ammonia, nitrates, and phosphates.
Renew should be used in exactly the same manner as activated carbon. Use 250 mL for each 120–160 L. Use in a filter bag only. Although Renew is clean, it is advisable to rinse before use. It lasts about the same as carbon (4–6 weeks).
