Question Activated Carbon for DOC/DOM removal?

Has anyone had success with this? I'm also wondering if I run the AC in my canister, will the DOC/DOM start to leech back out over time?

Thanks in advance..

Good question! I'm interested in learning more about DOC in general. I hope someone can tell us.

More water changes, less feeding, perhaps fewer fish more maintenance is what you need. AC is a band aid in established tanks and will remove some of your fertilizers.
