More questions... heh

I bought Algae Destroyer Advanced Liquid which is said to help with green water not my question is.... when I add something like this to the tank should I remove carbon coal (chemical filtration) out of the filter?

hi
remove the carbon,you don't need it.
most people i think only add carbon after medicating their tanks.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

i am no help with your type of filter,sorry,
most of the time carbon i think comes in little bags
and you are able to remove them,carbon
needs to be removed after a while anyway because
it can leak the chemicals back into the water.
if you add real plants that may help,as they will use
the neutrients(sp) or keep the
lights off completly.
the link that Lupin provided has some good info in it too.
