Aims of the research are to determine the type of activated carbon with high absorption rate in absorbing heavy metals of lead in green shells. This research used experimental method with complete randomized design then analyzed used analysis of variance and duncan test to see the decrease of lead in green shells by using different charcoal filters. The results showed that the highest decrease in green shell was by using coconut shell activated filter are 0,28 with a decrease percentage of 36,51%. The best lead decrease in water maintenance coconut shell activated filter treatment are 0,33 ppm. The coconut shell activated charcoal has a low ash content compared to other types and large pore charcoal size. Factors that supporting the metal absorption by charcoal include ash content on charcoal, charcoal pores, carbon concentration and pH concentration. Water quality measurements were measured in the morning and evening as supporting parameters in the study. Water quality measurements are in a range that can still be tolerated by green shells. Based on these results it can be concluded that the use of coconut shell activated charcoal is the best type of charcoal in lowering lead in green shells.
