I also have a wet/dry and don't use carbon except once when I used carbon to remove meds from my tank after treatment was complete. I also have an HOT magnum (hang on back filter) on this tank for extra filtration, which was where the carbon was placed. IMHO I don't believe carbon is neccessary.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
