    hello, i was wondering if when i use my seachem products, Excel, potassium, ect. does my carbon in my filter take it out? what should i be using in my HOB filter for my planted aquarium? also i have a canister filter being shipped, what are good choices for the 3 stages are far as not affecting the chemicals? thank you!

    Good morning,

    I haven't had any issues by using Activated Carbon, around the clock, in my 33g long heavily planted tank and using fertilizers. To date, my plants are doing extremely well. I use Excel daily, Flora Pride (liquid fert) Seachem Root Tabs monthly, Flourish Iron, and my water is filtered through Sara or Fluval Peat Pellets. Lighting is listed in my profile.

    You may get opinions on both sides of the fence here. :)
