what size is your tank and what make/model is your filter exactly?

Running carbon alone in a filter is not the best idea, you need something to remove waste from the water and for an area for the beneficial bacteria to live on.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
