Can you use the active carbon filters with your cherry breeding tanks. I have just been using the HOB with just the prescreen filter and was wondering about adding the carbon one?? What do you all use for your cherry breeding tanks?

Are you keeping plants and fertilizing?

If not, carbon is fine. If so, the jury's out. There are a lot of questions about the lifespan of activated carbon and it may only affect things for a few days, but it may also neutralize some ferts that you want in your tank.

If your shrimp are happy though, why change? If it ain't broke....

Why don't you post all your tank and water specs and we'll see if we can find something?
