Hey if I have two canister filters running in one tank is it alright for me to not have a filter pad and carbon in one of them? I mostly want the extra one for more bacteria and water flow. Thanks

You can add whatever you want into your canisters. If you want to do all 100% media that's cool...there are no laws about what to place into the canister...

Now hiding recreational drugs in a canister...that's a different story.

I don’t use carbon at all. I might keep at least one sponge prior to the media for the B.B. just to keep the biomedia from getting clogged.

Ok what is the carbon good for and what happens if it goes bad?

Carbon traps organic materials, colors, smells. Nothing happens when it “goes bad”, it just doesnt remove things anymore.
