Activated Tri Base Pelletized Carbon ®
(packaged in 1 lb., 5 lb., 10 lb., 55 lb., and 1,000 lb. Super Sacks)

Activated Tri Base Pelletized Carbon contains three different carbons in every single pellet, and is used in High Technology Applications.

The Tri Base pellets have a stretched absorption range capable of adsorbing an enormous range of pollutants. This breakthrough in carbon technology is used in Medical, Industrial, Environmental. Military, Laboratory and Home applications. Among its many uses are filtration of air, water, extraction of gold, and volatile toxic gas removal.

Tri Base Pelletized Carbon is a extremely high grade Activated Carbon. Follow these simple instructions and you will not have a pH shock which will harm or kill your organisms.

For NEW TANKS: without fish, invertebrates, corals or live rock. Rinse with tap water in colander to remove activated powder. Place TBPC in your filter and turn on the filter.

For OLD TANKS: WITH fish, invertebrates, corals or live rock. Rinse TBPC in colander to remove activated powder. Then place TBPC in a bucket or bowl and submerge in tap water. Put a air stone to bubble the water or power head which shoots above the water and run to two - three days. Then add TBPC between ∏ to 1 cup every two or three days to your filter system so it will not shock your organisms. This product will be replaced if defective in manufacture. Except for such replacement there is no warranty or liability for loss or damage even if caused by negligence or fault.

For aquarium and pond use Tri Base has many advantages:

• Because of its high capacity a smaller amount can be used in the filter, which is ideal especially when filter size is limited.

• The high surface area allows it to last longer and makes it more cost effective than other carbons.

• The unique manufacturing process creates a very broad Angstrom range, enabling it to adsorb numerous chemicals from air and water. See below for a complete list!

• Adsorbs all fish odours.

• Tri Base is shipped fluffy and dry, with no water added for weight.

• When rinsed for the first time it sizzles like soda pop!

• Large pellet size allows it to be used in any kind of filter without clogging plastic screens, or restricting or channeling the water flow.

• Hard pellets do not turn to mush and flow down the drain into the aquarium, or clog the filter with fines.

• Freshwater, Brackish water and Pond. Highly recommended for reef, non reef systems. Ideal for sensitive species.

• One of the three types of carbon contained in the Tri Base is a uniquely structured form of carbon that, if used in conjunction with
Right Now! Bacteria, allows this bacteria to complete the nitrogen cycle aerobically.

• The best bacteria bed on the market. Over 1150 m2/gram! Far superior than any plastic media or silica sand. One pound is equivalent to 454 grams. So the total surface of one pound is 1150 m2/gram X 454.
