    Ok i am so new its not even funny so sorry if this is in the wrong place. How long does the sheets of charcoal that i cut to fit the filter slot thingys last in a 75gallon tank with 8 smaller cichlids? Do i change it every month? I am on initial start up and 2 weeks and a first 10% water change everything looks and is going great i do not want to disturb anything by changing out the carbon too soon ??? Any help please?
