I'm dumb. I dosed my tank with PraziPro last night (10pm) but forgot to take out the charcoal from the filter. Right now it's 6am... Do I take the charcoal out and do a half dose before I leave for work this morning? Just take the charcoal out and wait? Wait until tonight? Tomorrow? Ahhhh x_x I can't believe I messed this up.

Thanks in advance!

If the charcoal has been in the filter for a while, it might already be "spent" and didn't absorb much of the medicine- but it's impossible to know whether that's the case, so you should err on the side of caution.

To avoid a possible OD of Prazi Pro, I would take the charcoal out now, keep an eye on whatever you're using the Prazi Pro for, and dose again in 3 days if the problem isn't resolved, making sure you don't have charcoal in next time.

The charcoal has been in the filter since I set up my tank (Aug 19th)... So I hope that it is at least partially spent & some of the medication went through.

Thanks for your advice - I will do that!
