Will Carbon and Nitri-Zorb kill my Bacteria???
I am in the process of Cycling my 55 gal.(end of 2nd week). After the cycle is finished, and I decide to sometime down the road start using Carbon and or Nitra-Zorb in my Rena Filstar xP3, Will using those kill off or harm the good bacteria???? Therefore undoing the "Great Wait" to get the cycle started in the first place. If so I wonder why companies manufacture all of these items for use in filters??
After having Aquariums off and on as life would allow, I have taken the "learn everything I can approach" to try to do things the correct way. Are these filter items just a waste of money? Some of the products available state that they help prevent "the new tank syndrome". If they do this , then how are the bacteria colonies ever even established?
