    We are about to medicate with Fish Mox
    Have 2 filters running that both have carbon in them.
    Can I just take carbon out of one filter and put the other pad in a bowl of tank water until he is healed Incase of the medication ruining our cycle??

    Do not have a hospital tank so all the fish will be experiencing this... any tips?? Never medicated before
    Should I do a big water change? We did one last Friday.

    Do a water change before medicating. Take the carbon out of your cartridges. Then put the cartridge back. You can put fresh carbon in after the medication cycle, if you choose to. Or you can put bioballs or other media in its place.

    You may experience a minor cycle disruption, but you may not. Keep an eye on your parameters and follow the package instructions for dosing and water changes.
