  • How much zeo carbon?

    I have been running 200ml, changed every 30 days, on my 75g (net volume), and it seems to be working okay. I noticed today that the bag and guide say 1000 ml for every 250g, which would be 300 ml. Should I increase the amount?

    Hi Tom, I use slightly less quantity than the guide recomendation. If you decide to increase, plz. do this over a couple of changes[2mos] just to be safe. Also, be careful about changing carbons, as they are not all equal in their effects. Bob

            I just started using ZEOcarbon and noticed that when I rinse it, the black powder doesnt stop. Does it not need to be rinsed?

                If the carbon is moved while rinsing, the powder will be produced constantly by the mechanical abrasion. I try to “move” the carbon only for the first minute while I rinsing. It is harmless for corals and fish if the powder reaches the system.

                  I rinse and soak mine in RO/DI overnight before I add it.. Might be overkill but I have always soaked things overnight before going into my tank.. I love the zeo carbon.. I use 2 cups for 200 net also...

                    Edward- i have the same problem, i soak mine over night like Jeff and then rinse it well trying not to rub it together and throw it in the sump. it has worked so far.
