What filter media to use for new planted tank
I am in the process of starting a new planted tank. I am currently working on my hardscape and getting my canister filter, CO2, etc. set up. The canister filter came with ceramic rings, bio balls and bags of activated carbon to put in the different trays. Some things I have ready say to not include the carbon in a planted tank, while others say they should be used. For a new tank setup, would you recommend using the carbon or not?
