I need a used canister filter that I can pack full of carbon and run for 2-4 weeks. I just added two huge pieces of driftwood and tannins are leeching. Doesnt have to be anything fancy.. I am thinking maybe a 2215 or 2217.

I have been using Purigen religiously for the last yr. It works wonderfull. However, these are leeching bad and I would have to swap them out every couple days...

Take the driftwood out of the tank and boil them in water. Everytime the boiling water gets real dark switch it out for fresh water. I do this and it take allot of the tannins out.
