Active carbon in aquariums fulfills the mission of water purification. Active carbon works by adhering toxic particles from the water, so active carbon in the aquarium will allow for more crystal-clear water.


It is used for 2 things mainly:

Elimination of medication in the aquarium. At the end of the process with the medication, active charcoal is used to eliminate any remains that may remain. Take the powdered activated carbon, put it in a sock or mesh, and place it in the aquarium for 24 hours. After 24 hours, all the medicine will have been absorbed and the water will be pure.

If you have planted plants, and have moved the substrate, the use of active carbon is also useful to eliminate remains of the substrate.


In marine aquariums, there are many traces of chemical elements present in the water. Active carbon, in its capacity to adsorb particles in water, has the danger of eating the salts present in seawater, including the calcium that corals need for their development.

There are two cases in which active carbon is necessary in the aquarium.

If, for example, in a marine aquarium, the substrate moves, and the stones move and, for example, diatom algae come out, they remain floating and can go to the corals, destroying them. Therefore, it would be necessary to use activated charcoal for at least 24 hours.

In the case of anemones, it is also necessary to use an active carbon filter. An anemone, when it dies, is capable of killing anything you have in the aquarium. It is also necessary to immediately install an active carbon filter.
