Activated carbon removing all the good stuff?????
Hello all.....AGAIN, LOL.....another question from an inquiring mind....I run a double-cartridge Aqua-Tech filter on both of my 55 gal.aquariums.....NOW, my question is....since Im using liquid ferts, and API's Carbon Booster(No CO2), should I remove the carbon from the filter cartridges?? I read all over about how well absorbing carbon is, and I don't want to be wasting time AND money adding these ferts if they are getting sucked up by the carbon in my filters......my ammonia levels are ZERO in both aquariums, and all the other parameters(Nitrate,nitrite, ph,etc) are all good, so I DONT want to upset anything by removing the carbon, BUT, I don't want to be adding these other ferts and having them get wasted if the carbon is removing them before they can do their job....thanks, all.....JESUS SAVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Oh, can I say that on here??? Also, Im running a small Tetra filter(1 cartridge) in one of my aquariums,along with the Aqua-Tech....I cant remember....I had an issue years ago, which prompted me to add this additional filter.....Ive just kept it going.......too much filtration?? I don't know if any of you folks run 2 filters.....just curious.......have a great Monday,everyone, and GOD bless you all!!!! GODS beauty in nature is seen as I gaze into my aquariums.....such wonderful creations HE'S given us!!!!
