Will this make my water cloudy?

If I put carbon in little media bags and place them in my tank (NOT INSIDE THE FILTER) will it do anything negative to my water or make it cloudy? Thanks

shouldnt make it cloudy. the whole point is to get water to move over it so it can take the stuff out of the water. why didnt you put it in the filter?

I've seen that done in sumps before but be careful if it is accessible to the fish as they may come around and try nibbling the carbon. As stated in the previos post, the point is to have water flowing over/through it so it's best left in your filter.

my filters dont have room for it to go inside, but i have it right at the filters outlet so the water coming out gets pushed through the media bags...

why kind of filter is it and why do you need all the excess carbon? If your filter doesn't have any space for chemical filtration then you may want to get a new filter.

thats why i'm asking...why do you need the excess carbon then? To be honest, carbon isn't even really a neccesity at all if you have a good filter in place.
