We use activated charcoal in the filter for that tank and change it every two weeks without fail. We also use an air pump for better gaseous exchange. If you intend to use normal light and perhaps add plants, that's a whole other story. Let us know your plans and water parameters.
I do not have water parameters yet because I have not started the tank. I'm planning on what fish will be in there so that I know what the water will need to be. I don't plan on having live plants in this tank. It will have a "blue" light. (The black light) I have gotten some neon plastic plants and will have a few other things for hiding in it.
