    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    What is the charcoals intended purpose? If it not aquarium use than I would not. Are those values found on the container? For what reason do you want to use it, algae, yellow water?

    I wana use it for polishing water and remove yellowness.. though purigen is helping me with with it, by almost 70%, i wana use carbon for the rest as it also removes many other things too... though i wana use it only to remove yellow water... seachem carbon is available here but it falls very expensive in long run for larger tanks as we pay double of what u guys pay.... :(
