Could somebody tell me the benefits of carbon in filtration?
I would recommend just running carbon for a few hours after you've finished a course of meds to clear the remaining meds out. That's the only time we use carbon in ours.
And then wat do we do? Re-Use the same carbon next time? How long can we use the carbon at one time? When do we know that the carbon needs to be replaced with the new one? Do we need to wash the carbon before use every time?
And yea, a quick rinse before putting the carbon into the tank gets rid of the carbon dust so it doesn't get out into the filter or the tank itself.
