Don't use carbon since it would remove meds.
Sounds good. I guess I will work on cleaning out the QT and get it ready for bare-bottom. I guess I will also order that Oxygen Plus Bio-Filter 11
Also, check out this thread
to add your vote to my next school fish species. Neons and glowlights are out of the question for now, though. I guess it is between Von Rio Tetra and Black Widow Tetra (aka black skirt).
Thanks for the imput, DKRST!
