Who uses it ?

I swear by the stuff having just removed mine it was absolutely black but after some re-generation it's just about ready to go again and I can already tell it's not been in there

I use it! But I haven’t taken it out of the filter to check since putting it in.

I have four pieces of driftwood and didn’t want a black water tank so bought it for that. Worked wonders!

How have you cleaned / recharged it?
Fluval 240L with 306. Water 1.68 dGh. 

19 Harlequin Rasbora, 15 Rummynose Tetra, 10 Panda Corydoras, 2 Bolivian Rams and 2 Amano shrimp.

Yes I've just re-charged it with bleach for 48 hours and then soak in Prime dechlorinator to get rid of bleach come out like new it was black.

That depends on a lot of things like tannins ect if you have wood and what your current load is within the water column I have always used it and water clarity is excellent
